The final meeting of the Senate 
was held on the lawn of illustrious 
Old Chapel, sort of a constitutional 
grass. Among the actions discussed 
were the new Senate radio program, 
the faculty rating scale, new budget, 
NSA, and the results of the Senate 
letter to the Board of trustees in 
regard to the hike in tuition, an in- 
dication of a fairly good working 
Senate, one which, although it has 
not accomplished all it could, has st ; !l 
accomplished a good deal. 

Congratulations were extended, and 
rightly so, to Messrs. Naroyan, Fein- 
in regard to their

a rating scale. (2) That the informa-

Placement Training . . . 

Continued from page 9 

We've tried to help "Bert" out, but 
"Minnie" just won't have anything 1 1 
do with him. She's sort of a snob, 
and since "Bert" isn't a pure bi. 
she's waiting for one. She'll probably 
be producting orange carbonated wat- 
er before we get a pure bred buli 
around here. But when we tell he 
this she just wags her tail and saw 
"It's all or nothing."

'Ashes of Roses' . . . 

Continued from />".o< ■■' 
sort of closet-opera. 

Just a word must be said about the 
devil of the evening. I use so harsh a 
term because I am sure none other 
than a malicious Mephistopheles could 
have been pulling the curtain Fri- 
day night. It took a positive genius 
for the perverse for anyone to make 
so many wrong moves. It is a wonder 
no one was strangled to death. 

All told, the production was a very 
ambitious undertaking for so young 
a musician as Dick Rescia. 

The opera was preceded by a short 
concert. Roland Gagnon, baritone, 
struggled heroically with Wagner's O 
tin mein 'holder Aesedstera, whose di- 
mensions exceed the lyric quality of 
his voice. He was better in Leonca- 
vallo's Mattinata and the two light 
lyrics which followed, though here he 
was bothered by a somewhat heavy- 
handed and independent accompani- 
ment. Theda Torlai, harpist, sub- 
stituted for the absent piano soloist, 
doing a Palestrina Chorale very sen- 
sitively and a harp showpiece, The 
Fountain, with proper scintillation. 
Loraa Wildon, soprano, sang Puc- 
cini's Vimi D'Arte, a dramatic mas- 
terpiece not entirely suited to her 
brilliant coloratura. She was much 
more at home in Bizet's Ouvre ton 
Coeur and the laughing Song from 
Hie FledermaHft. She too had a bit 
of accompaniment trouble and it was 
not until her encore, Nevin's Mighty 
Lak A Rose that the accompaniment 
became subdued and subservient to 
the wishes of the singer. 

Chorale . . . 

Continued from y,(ige •? 
29, the chorale gave its first public 
concert in Boston since it was founi 
ed four years ago. The concert took 
place in the magnificent Dorothy 
Quincy Suite of the newly construct- 
ed John Hancock Building before M 
audience of alumni, families, liui 
friends of the chorale group, and " 
general the people of Boston. 

The last concert for this year w»< 
presented at Carnegie Hall in Ke» 
York. Both the chorale and director 
Doric Alviani left last Thursday f 
Xew York. Since it was to be ai 
overnight trip, arrangements wen 
made for them to stay at the Barbi 
zon Plaza and to have their dinner 
at the famous Toffanetti's Restau- 
rant. On returning to Amherst aft* 
an exciting two-day trip, the choral* 
feels that it has completed a mo<: 
successful year. 

Doric Alviani who can be justifi- 
ably proud of his group of singers. 
gives great praise to the chorales 
three student managers to date: Mar- 
cia Van Meter '48, Mrs. Sally Holies 
Collier '49 and the present manager 
Joan McLaughlin '30. With a team 
like Joan, Doric, Lawrence Dickinson 
and Bob McCartney, the business of 
managing the chorale has been done 
with much ease and efficiency. 

The two accompanists for the cho- 
rale are Jocelyn Dugas '53 and Dick 
Rescia '51. Often on chorale pro- 
grams, Dick, who is a creative mo»''

To The Class of 1954 

The Collegian extends to you the warm welcome of the college 
newspaper not in this editorial alone but in every page of this 
issue dedicated to you and printed primarily for your first day 
on campus. 

Today, you are finding out how that proverbial chicken with 
his head cut off must feel. You have been led or carried (depend- 
ing upon your self-sustaining power) around the campus from 
place to place; had speeches, phamphlets, and people thrown at 
you; have already possibly missed one meal; and now you prob- 
ably feel like a confused being among your many lost compan- 
ion's . . . and at a time like this it doesn't seem to help any to know- 
that there are 799 more students just waiting around to form a 
line in front of you. 

Well, the registration office tells us that they selected you 
out of a group 2500 strong. We think you can as such a select 
group quickly outgrow any confusion existing at the present and 
we offer two things to aid you in that task ; first — this special 
informative issue of the Collegian, and, second — the assurance 
that the administration, faculty and upperclassmen all want you 
to quickly become a vital part in our congenial campus life. 

Thought For The Semester 

Editor's Sate: The following is reprinted from the 194H-49 Report Of 
The President. 

One of the best aspects of the State university is that it 
brings together on one campus students who are majoring in lib- 
eral arts and science, agriculture and forestry, home economics 
and engineering. We bring together students of different inter- 
ests and backgrounds, and we have a core curriculum designed 
to give all of them a first-rate general education, as well as to 
equip them for specialized professions such as teaching, farming, 
journalism, landscape architecture, business and accounting, food 
technology, public health work, civil and electrical and mechanical 
and chemical engineering, and the various scientific fields, such 
as physics, biology, chemistry and geology. 

We are a small university, but we have the varied aspects 
and the potentialities for becoming a university great in the qual- 
ity of its work.

Collegian Profile No. 1 and 38 

Scientist Van Meter is 13th President 


So all right, I'm being prosaic, 
still, here we are again. I'd like to 
welcome you all back to the mellowed 
halls of the U of M (mellow being 
the present tense of mildewed). Es- 
pecially, I'd like to welcome you 
freshmen, the younger degeneration. 

Although school has officially start- 
ed, summer is still close enough to 
be more than a memory. My summer, 
I spent this year holding a position. 
The woman situation being what it 
was, and me being what I am, it was 
the only thing I held for three long 

Speaking of the woman situation 
(I hate to mention S*E*X* so 
soon in the year before the frosh are 
acclimated) speaking of women, on 
the beach where I'm working, the 
gills are so young that when they go 
swimming, they don't wear bathing 
suits, they wear diapers. On a date 
they carried along a change of 
clothes, talcum powder, and a bottle 
of Mennen's Baby Oil, which they 
took along when they're adjourning 
to the powder room. At least the food 
situation wasn't bad. The favorite 
dish was Pablum. 

If you're buying them a coke, af- 
ter the drink, you have to burp 
them. I used to take care of the cou- 
ple next door's baby girl, and then 
tell everybody I'd had a date. 

Once a twelve year old girl (A 
beaut, yet — all over behind) is coming 
into the bar-fountain-two days in ■ 
row to talk and eat the straws, and 
right away, my aunt who owns the 
place is getting suspicious. "Oy" she 
says, "Your mother will say I'm los- 
ing her a son!" I'm answering dryly- 
and believe me I could do it, Ware- 
ham being a dry town (God bless 
800) "Auntie," I'm saying, "Listen 
a minute, give a listen. The way I'm 
feeling right now she should only 
feel she'll be gaining twenty grand- 
children." Auntie gives me the look 
over, and laughs a dirty laugh. I'm

Students who are called to active 
duty or summoned to military ser- 
vice by reason of the draft are re- 
quested to report immediately to the 
Dean's Office so that a proper nota- 
tion may be made on their permanent 
records and so that the necessary re- 
funds of tuition and fee may be made. 

It is highly important that this be 
done so that the return to this in- 
stitution or entrance into another in- 
stitution upon completion of military 
service may be expedited. 

. . . our President. 
Editors Note: This is a rewrite of 
Profile No. 1, introducing for the 
first time to the class of 1954 . . . . 
our President. 

Back in 1913 a gangling 6 feet 
2 inches) 19 year-old student ran a 
one man delivery service for a laun- 
dry to earn some of his way as a 
freshman at Ohio State University. 
Today at 56 he is Dr. Ralph Albert 
Van Meter, 13th president of the 
University of Massachusetts. Formal 
inauguration was held October 16, 

"Men who know him best," reports 
a Boston Globe article of May 9, 
1948, say he's a natural leader, gen- 

sequently he acquired a Ph. |i. 
horticulture at Cornell. In 1932 - 
began his administrative career as 
dean of the school of horticulture 
Associates say he has the mental 
habit of looking for evidence 
drawing conclusions, and he soon b*. | 
came known as one of the abl. 
ucators on campus. During t! 
he had charge of the army tr 
program here. 

The Van Meters have four chi!;. 
ren: Marcia, the youngest, who w M | 
graduated from here in June and is 
now employed with the National Cor- 
cert and Artists Corp. in New York; 
David, the eldest, now teaching enjj.

uinely democratic, wholly without 
frill, liked by all ages of men and 
women." These personal qualities, 
plus his demonstrated skill as an ad- 
ministrator, he was acting president 
for a year, largely explain why the 
trustees unanimously selected him as 
president after canvassing, as Chair- 
man Bartlett reported, "the names of 
at least 50 possible men." 

Upon graduating from Ohio State 
in 1917, the future head of the 
U of M came to Amherst as an in- 
structor in food conservation at what 
was then called Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College. Here he met Miss 
Eudora Turtle, of Eastport, N. Y., a 
Cornell graduate, who was teaching 
home economics. In 1918, while he 
was in the Army, they were married, 
and after his discharge — he came out 
of service as a first sergeant with 
knowledge of the Argonne and St. 
Mihiel — they settled in Amherst. 

An excellent scientist, he was made 
professor of pomology in 1923. Sub- 

lege; Helen, with G. Fox Departmtr: 
Store in Hartford and JsaM, 
did graduate work at M.I.T. and r.o» 
is a research engineer at United A 
craft in Hartford, Conn. 

Hiking is the President's favorite I 
hobby; the White Mountains, th-e I 
Green Mountains, and the Adiror- 
dacks, being his favorite stamping | 
grounds. He belongs to the faculty 
hiking club known as the Metawam- 
pes, named for an Indian chief who 
inhabited our valley, according to re- 
ports unverified by the Collegian. 

The Metawampes have a son? of 
many verses, one of which concern; 
the president, and goes like this: 

Now here's to Ralph Van Meter! 
They say the view is fine 
From his exalted summit 
Above the timber line. 
He leads our hikers on the trail 
With footsteps long and wide. 
The sun-of-a-gun he ought to be hunt | 
For that un-Godly stride.

Emphasis Placed On Defense In Pre -Season Football Practice 

Redmen To Use "Sliding-T" 
Beaumont Out For Season, 

Coach Tommy Eck, with hopes of bettering the Redmen's last year's 
•d of three wins and five defeats, has switched from a wing formation 
to a "split-T." The "T" calls for the quarterback to slide up and down the 
;ine of scrimmage and thus will be known as the "Sliding-T." 

Starting Lineup 
The first backfield unit will be quarterbacked by Jack Benoit of Spring- 
field with Captain Marty Anderson of Palmer at right half, Ray Beaulac 
,,f Hoiyoke at left half, and Dick Gleason of East Lebanon, Me., at full. 
The second unit is made up of one 

or and three sophomores. Noel 
Reebenacker will be calling the plays, 
Frank DiGiammarino and George 
Howland will be the halves, and Ger- 
ry 1'oherty, the senior, at fullback. 
Kickers Inexperienced 

Coach Eck's major worries have 
concerned with the lack of exper- 
ience In the kicking department and 
the light weights of his enters. With 
the graduating class last June went 
l>on Sisson who had been kicking 
ip cialist for the last three seasons. 
Chances are that either or both Be- 
noit or Dick Boynton will be doing 
the putting come September 80 and 
the Bates game. 

With the "Sliding-T" being used 

as the offensive, heavy centers will 

ceded to protect the quarterback. 

Outside of veteran Arnie Pinto the 

centers are all less than 170 pounds 

Looking Things Over 

by Joe Broude 

Once again it is time to extend op- 
timistic greetings to all those on cam- 
pus and to the freshmen then is al- 
so a simple but sincere message. 

To most of you, athletics at the 
University are comparatively un- 
known, and to a few there may be 
the thought that they are even non- 
existent. This stems from two very 
visible roots. The first is that we 
have received very little publicity 
in the Boston newspapers and the 
second is that up until last year we 
had been far from successful. 

However, the University offers a 
full scale athletic program open to 
all who wish to participate. Through 

efforts of our Director of Athletics, 
and unless improvement is shown at j Warren McGuirk, the past year has 

center slot changes will have to be 
made in the offensive before opening 

Don Smith of Greenfield and Phil 
Roth of Turners Falls appeared to 
tee the list of end candidates but 
Tony Szurek of Adams is still pro- 
viding stiff competition. Other hope- 
fuls for the end jobs are Jack Pyne 
from Melrose and Dick Conway, for- 
mer Quincy High athlete. 

John Nichols of Middleboro and 
Rob Warren from Weymouth have 
the edge on the tackle positions while 
sophs Billy Graham of Lexington, 
Ray Graham of Maiden, and Bill 
Hicks from Braintree have yet to 
give up. 

Stiff competition for the guard 
I'osts is being provided by Al Tur- 
cotte of South Hadley, Fran Driscoll 
Maiden, Dave Fuecillo of Win- 
chester, Bob Nolan from Winthrop, 
and Bob Driscoll, ex Melrose athlete. 
Daily Double 

Daily double sessions have been 
the call of the day with two hours of 
; 'actice in the morning and two more 
in the afternoon. Some of the train- 
ing periods have been followed up 
with skullwork in the evenings which 
allows the coaching staff an oppor- 
tunity to review the day's progress. 

New Book Plan . . .

brought improvements on our playing 
fields, a better schedule of events, 
and the founding of an Athletic 
Scholarship Fund. Mr. McGuirk is 
doing his job well. The coaches will 
do theirs and the players will fight 
to win. 

Regardless of this, before many 
weeks have passed, you will hear ru- 
mors and stories, some true, some 
prejudiced, concerning our coaches 
and teams. Singular coaches and in- 
dividual players will be verbally at- 
tacked by the "grandstand managers" 
for their efforts and degree of suc- 
cess. It will be up to each student to 
draw his own conclusions. 

Behind every successful athletic 
team there must be student support. 
This is where not only freshmen should 
take part but all students and fac- 
ulty members. Support of any organ- 
ization is the primary factor of suc- 
cess. Empty football stands, noiseless 
students, and lack of cheering does not 
instill the will to win in any athlete. 
A pat on the back and a few cheers 
never did anyone any harm. The 
touchdown needed to win may be 
gained by your yelling for it at the 
game. You certainly can do no harm 
unless its by your absence. If you 
can't take part in a sport you can 
at least back one.

Augustine J. Ryan 
New C-StoreHead 

The appointmen of a new general 
manager for the campus store was 
announced this summer by President 
Ralph A. Van Meter. 

Mr. Augustine J. Ryan, a native of 
Lawrence and a graduate of Dart- 
mouth College and the Harvard Bus- 
iness School, succeeds to the position 
made vacant last spring by the death 
of Donald Hawley, manager for sev- 
enteen years. 

Mr. Ryan comes to the university 
from Otis Field where he was gener- 
al manager of the post exchange. He 
has had nearly twenty years experi- 
ence in this field. 

From 1931 to 1946 he managed 
post exchanges at Fort Devens, Fort 
Banks, and the Murphy General Hos- 
pital in Waltham. During the war he 
held the rank of captain in the post 
exchange service. In 1946 he became 
purchasing agent for the VA Can- 
teen Service in New England.

ten, so the shape don't drape, it 
droops. A Ford ain't a Cadillac, so 
the motor still runs, don't it?" She 
comes right back. "Buddy, if I was 
you, I'd have somebody check my ig- 
nition." How can you win? 

Every day I'm going down to the 
beach for a swim. In the house I'm 
staying there's no bath, so this is 
not a luxury but a necessity. All 
around me, I'm seeing golden tanned 
bodies. Me, I'm getting three freckles 
and a splotch. Where's the splotch, 
you should never know. So all right, 
1 told mamma I'm needing a new 
bathing suit. 

I met one of the freshmen who 
just came up in Boston. He's show- 
ing me all the new clothes he's buying 
to make a splash in our society 
world. So, I'm asking him, "What's 
the matter you need clothes, you 
ain't taking ROTC?" Speaking of the 
Rotten Rotcies, I was afraid for a 
while that they wouldn't be coming 
back from Stewart Field and Fort 
Knox (How they got that name I 
wonder. It's a girl's school?) till I 
was led to understand that the ser- 
vice needed men, so I'm resting as- 
sured I'll see my roommates again. 

Buying some absolute essentials for 
school with the money left over after 
I'm stocking up on bar chits, I'm 
finding I must ask my mother for 
some dough to buy after-shave lotion. 
She's asking, "What's with the girls 
by you? On dates, they're kissing or 
smelling? You aint got enough, now 
you should need perfume?" For this 
I got an answer. "Mamma, it ain't 
what I haven't got. I'm trying to 
hide what I got already." "Henh!" 

'Robie Maynard, 
Bill Tague Join 
Newspaper Staffs 

Two more former Collegian mem- 
bers have gone into newspaper work, 
it was announced last week by Jour- 
nalism Professor Arthur Musgrave. 

Floyd Maynard was recently made 
editor of the Amherst Journal. 

William H. Tague, Jr. joined the 
city staff of the Berkshire Evening 
Eagle this past summer as a combi- 
nation reporter and photographer. 

Nine other alumni have gone into 
newspaper work since June of 1948. 
Mr. Tague is the third recent alum- 
nus to join the Berkshire Evening 
Eagle staff. Preceding him were 
Paul Perry, '50, and Henry Colton, 

Collegian-exes are now working 
newspapermen in Springfield, Hol- 
yoke, Greenfield, Boston, and Fall Ri- 
ver, as well as Pittsfield. 

Both Mr. Maynard and Mr. Tague 
were winners of Outstanding Jour- 
nalists Awards last Spring. 

She's snarling, "Just like your father 
with his bummer friends." "Why?" 
I ask, "So what's he trying to hide?" 
"What else?" she replies, "Me!" 

The day I'm coming back I'm meet- 
ing a girl who — it shouldn't happen 
to your worst enemy — used to go 
out with me. She sticks her third 
finger, left hand in my right eye, 
which I'm not using anyway, and is 
saying, "Look at me, I'm engaged." 
so I ask her, "To a feller?" 

She'a seeing me like I was the meal 
on the cook's night off. "After you, 
I felt I needed a change in life." 
Why not? She's passed the age. So, 
for revenge, I'm writing dirty words 
in her notebook while she's table- 
hopping in the C-Store. 

But still, no money, no car, no girl, 
I'm glad to be back. You meet such 
friendly people. Everybody is meeting 
and shouting, "Gin, you pup" Of 
course, they're not using those same 
words, but they tell me there's no 
difference. Could you believe it?

The new restriction will cease after 
Dean's Saturday, Dec. 2, for fres'i- 
man women who have an everage of 
70 or higher. 

The new restriction is the result of 
discussions and recommendations by- 
faculty advisors, dormitory Iv 
councils, the Panhellenic Council, and 

the student Senate Committee on 
Women's Affairs. 

According to Dean Curtis, the re- 
striction will give the freshmen a 
chance to get well established in their 
studies before many activities, in- 
cluding sorority rushing, distract 
them. "Greater freedom after the 
first eight weeks if a 70 average is 
achieved," the Dean says, "will give 
the freshmen a goal to work for." 

Leaders of all extra-curricular ac- 
tivities have been asked to co-operate 
in scheduling events BO freshman wo- 
men will he able to attend. 

Estimated at a cost of $2600 by 
chairman Gin Lecesse, Candid I M 
will show two typical C. of M. stu- 
dents in their daily life on the 
lege campus. Aiice O'Donnell will 
play the female lead; the male lead 
is yet to be selected. It will be shown

The university of Mtuachusetti inhered in its 87th year 
last Thursday at Hicks (lymnasium with a majority of the stu- 
dent body and faculty stair in attendance. 

President Ralph A. Van Meter welcomed the st talents at the 
opening convocation with the advice: 

"Go through college doirt wait 
for college to go through you." 

In his talk the president disCUSSed 
the role of the University in the 
current defense program ami urged 
th.. students to prepare themselves 
to meet whatever comes "coolly . 
P/ith good balance." Dr. Van Meter 
hinted that the state university would 
again play an Important roll in event 
of a major war. 

The state university Read told 
members of the Student body not to 

be disturbed by the "knell ringers," 

"While future events are urn ■ 
tain," he said, "this is not tin end 
of civilisation. This is not n,,. ,. n d

I ivemment. Democracy is a sturdier 
plant than that nourished by mi!

brushed aside overnight." 

"While recognising the possibility 
of war you should prepare for tin 
certainty of peace," Dr. Van Meter 
said, addii g that "America will still

the present disturbai bj over. 

Calling for a "broader, more in- 

ClusiVB humanism" which he de - 

cribed as "long overdue", Dr. Van

Maroon Key Has Rough Job Arousin? 
Reluctant Freshmen for Morning W?Jk 

It's 4:-'!0 in the morning 
is dark - as dark as the night outside. 
Suddenly the stillness of the night is 
split by the ear-shattering bedlam of 
the alarm clock. It's time to rise and 
shine with the members of the M.i- 
roon Key. 

After hearing so much about the 
glory of being chosen for the Maroon 
Key, men's sophomore honor society, 
your reporter decided to see for him- 
self how much of this glory was 
true. Therefore, I (decided to) trav- 
eled along with the Maroon Key as 
they opened Freshman week by get- 
ting the little heasts up at 5:t0 in 
the morning. 

So, I found myself walking along 
Sunset Ave, through a deserted cam-

The room pus, and 

ip to Mills House which 
was to be the base of operations. In 
case anyone tells you that it doesn'l 
get too cold up here, tell him to | 
an early morning stroll. 

Finally, all the Maroon Key strs 
gled in. The Rig Push was on. I 
decided to split up into groups ami 
hit all the freshman dorms at once. 
Thus, I found myself on the fourth 
floor of Brooks House faced with the 
job of awakening some fifty odd re- 
luctant freshmen. At first, the poor 
dears objected to getting up so early 
in the morning, and refused to co- 
operate. However, with the aid of a 
co-operative proctor's key, the beds 
suddenly emptied out in a hurry.

It is an unfortunate commentary on the education of the 
freshman class when two of their members are ignorant of the 
history and tradition of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. 
The incident that happened in the Physical Education building last 
week was not only entirely unnecessary, but should never have 
been allowed to happen in the first place. 

The School of Agriculture has been in existence since 1918 
here at the University and has the largest agricultural short 
course program in the Northeast. Since its organization, the 
School has enrolled more than 3000 students. Many of their grad- 
uates have assumed high positions in community, state, and na- 
tional governments. Others among them have transferred to the 
University itself and established commendable records during 
their stay here. 

Stockbridge itself has its own yearbook and. in addition main- 
tains two active fraternities which are expected to soon join the 
Tnter-fraternitv Council of the University. Ever since its found- 
ing, the School has been an integral part of the University. When 
• me takes these facts into consideration, one would at least ex- 
pect the freshman class to know and recognize some of the tra- 
dition that lies within the walls of Stockbridge Hall. 

It is a great tribute to the members of the Stockbridge foot- 
ball team that the two freshman offenders got off so lightly. Re- 
member, freshmen and yes. upperclassmen too. that there are a 
great many things you can learn from your fellow students in 


I . t COLLEGIAK is your ueuspaper md h bound by tradition and con- 
tfitUtion t0 S9TP4 this unit etui) in the following specific nays: 

To report news-worthy activities in the news columns, which 
shall be free from opinion and bias, and as accurate as possible, 
so that the newspaper will serve as a central source of reliable 
information to the university students and staff. 

To express student and faculty opinion about the news on the 
editorial page or in interpretative feature articles. 

To offer students an opportunity to acquire newspaper ex- 
perience and skill in writing, as well as knowledge of the adver- 
tising circulation and business aspects of newspaper work. 

To provide the public with information about its university. 

However, to gain a closer and more beneficial association with every 
department, organization, and extra-curricular activity on this campus through 
better publicity, the COLLEGIAX offers an additional policy for this semester. 

The COLLEGIAN will print a ten page issue to provide 
better news coverage, more pictures, and a greater variety of 

The COLLEGIAN will cover every department individually 
for information and will send f ?e Collegians to each of them. 

The COLLEGIAN will off c r publicity advice and aid to the 
organization or activity which pioves by the advancement of new 
and better ideas that they too v ant a finer all-around university. 

The COLLEGIAN in return requests of the organizations, departments, 
md students, only that they recognize and understand the main problems in- 
volved m publishing a college newspaper. 

Remember! The staff is composed entirely of students, the 
majority of whom spend over half their time outside of classes in 
putting out the newspaper every week. 

The COLLEGIAN has limited funds to spend for paper and 
printing costs, and cannot possibly publish every article which is 
submitted to the office even though that article may be of impor- 
tance to persons or groups on campus. 

II V rtCMtsi of — 

The departments: That not just a few representatives but 
every member of each department realize the value of better ac- 
quaintanceship with every activity on campus and enter whole- 
heartedly into a program of increased interest in and aid to the 
students outside the classrooms. 

The organizations and activities: That they keep in mind this 
thought, where one group may fail to accomplish a goal, two or 
three groups will find it an easy task. Independence is one thing, 
ack of unity is another. Keep your independence in the matters 
lhat affect your group alone but strive to share any plans for the 
betterment of life on campus with your fellow organizations. 

The students: That you read the COLLEGIAN and help us 
throagh' constructive criticism to help you. 

When I read the announcements 
stating that I was required to attend 
an "Opening Convocation of the Uni- 
versity", I had no way of being cer- 
tain just what kind of a meeting that 
would be. For all I knew it might be 
■ pep rally, a song fest, or some other 
kind of circus. However, I felt that 
I had every right to expect a solemn 
ceremony marking the opening of the 
academic year. After attending the I 
meeting I am still not quite certain 
what it was, but I am sure that the 
circus aspects prevailed. 

Perhaps I am at a disadvantage in 
commenting on this meeting inas- 
much as I was unable to hear more 
than one-fifth of what was said from 
the platform. However, as I glanced 
at the apathetic faces around me, I 
was convinced that over half the au- 
dience was sharing the same fate. 
The fault lies squarely with the main- 
tenance men who set up the public 
address system. It is a commonly 
known fact that when loudspeakers 
are set up at different distances from 
the platform, the sound arrives at 
any given point at different times 
from each speaker. The result is like 
hearing two different speeches at the 
same time — one can hear and under- 
stand nothing. 

Nine-tenths of the program, then, 
had to be disregarded on grounds of 
complete unintelligibility. The remain- 
der consisted of band, drill team, 
and cheerleader activities more suit- 
able for a pep rally than for the 
solemn opening of the academic year. 
Moreover, the leader of the band and 
the head cheerleader insisted on ad- 
dressing themselves exclusively to 
those freshmen who were present. The 
freshmen parroted cheers and songs 
from their little red books with per- 
haps enough volume to make up for 
their lack of enthusiasm. The upper- 
classmen who might have added a 
little vigor to the activities, appar- 
ently feeling they had been pointedly 

: ignored, wisely kept their mouths 
shut. On the whole the songs and 

j cheers more clowely resembled a f un- 

jeral march. 

The ceremony ended to the dirge 
of tom-toms as the lone redmen pre- 
sent dashed from the hall screaming 
hysterically. Outside, the members of 
the faculty were seen soberly con- 
ferring among themselves. And well 
they might!

After intensive research and inves- 
tigation the Finance Committee of 
your Student Senate has made the 
recommendation that the student ac- 
tivities fee be raised per stu- 
dent starting the second semester of 
the year 1950-51. This pioposal is 
no hasty one, it was carefull/ thought 
out and the decision arrived at was 
for your benefit. 

This money is nee Ud to bolster 
the meager reserves in the Student 
Government treasury. Out of this 
treasury comes money for WMl'A. 
the Maroon Key, Scrolls, !sogo:i, 
Adelphia, Freshmen Girl's T?a 
Parties, Mother's Day and Homecom- 
ing Weekend. All these events and 
activities benefit you as a student on 
this campus. For the student Senate 
to keep these activities on the high 
plane that you expect, more funds are 
needed. It is not a matter of w 'rth- 
less spending but one of making a 
wise investment. The dividends are a 
feeling of contribution and a footing 
of pride in the activities your money 

This recommendation will appear 
as a referendum on the Senat'.* elec- 
tion ballot on Monday, October 9, 
1950. At least fifty percent of tne 
student body must vote on tHia refer- 
endum if it is to be considered legal, 
and at least fifty percent of those 
voting must favor it to secure pas- 

More than ever, this year premises 
to be a golden one for the univer- 
sity. The passage of this referendum 
will assure funds which your student 
Senate needs to help make that prom- 
pt a reality.

Moral Obligation 


Bob Davies 

/ think that ire should be men i 
and subjects afterward. 

Henry Thoreau, Civil Disobedi^,,,-. 

It is a fact — if any historical ev> 
dence is factual — that the majorit. 
of men tend to be willing slaves. Tl> 
yokes are seldom physical, but subo:- 
dination of the individual to oth. : 
individuals or groups of men is slav. 
ery. These enslaved men do not exi. 
as intellectual, emotional entities. 
They are subordinate clauses. A Goo4 
State must consist of moral but* 
duals and men. 

Some people believe in the Stat.- 
as a body of individuals; others be- 
lieve in the State as a body of indi- 
viduals which is above the particula. 
individual. Scoundrels abide in eac ; . 
camp. Scoundrels are men who wouM 
act as dogs because they live in a 
Dog-eat-dog Society and they arc 
men who would live as domestic dog. 
in a State Household. There are indi- 
viduals who do not want to act u 
dogs — not caring a damn for any 
particular breed of dog-like behavior 
offered. These are moral individual. 

A moral individual is a body tha: 
wants contentment, an intellect that 
wants delight, an emotional bei-u- 
that wants love for humanity. F 
him there is but one sin — to act con- 
trary to love of self and love for h*- 
manity. He does not want to live r. 
a world apart from other individual 
and other men. He must, however, 
insist on his unwritten contract witi 
the State; a contract that allows i 
voluntary disaxsociation for protec- 
tion of his existence as a moral ini- 

American government is bas> 
the idea that the majority rules ani 
that the minority is guaranteed it- 
right (within the law existent* 
freedom and agitation. The America- 
government, however, is not pe; 
in the eyes of the moral individua. 
Exploitation of man by man ll 
charge he rightly levels against tr.i 
country. Moral codes contrary to 
dignity that he assumes to be th 
right of every man, he rightly chang- 
es against this country. But the- 
; a large measure of freedom now 
existence here that tends to 1 
him. He wishes to use this State : 
enlarge such freedom. 

To the moralist, then, the BtH 
should exist as a guarantee of n 
individualism. He may observe ou;- 
wardly the unjust sexual, drinkir.: 
smoking, medical, social and workir.-' 
codes of the State but he will not ki 
for the State. Murder, after all. - ; 
the concrete expression of hatred fa 
that sacred being, man. If he ca r 
live and love himself and humani: 
without going to war he will not z f 
to war. It is fortunate that the mot: 
individual in America can, in th* 
event of war, choose between survivx 
of his moral personality and destruc- 
tion of that whole self. Prison is » 
high price, but it is dignified. 

The Good State is a society that 
exists good because there are laws 
and democratic controls that preserve 
both the herd and the moral individu- 
al. The Good State, though it does re- 
start wars indirectly or directly, can 
exist upon outside attack because m 
of its imperfect composition. Ideal:

nostalgic memories, I'm languishly 
smelling the old, familiar smells as 
I enter the locker room. On such 
delicious odors, the Russians should 
have a premium. 

Cuddling up to the basket man, I 
murmur, "Gimme a basket, big boy." 
He looks at me suspicious, and asks, 
-Are you sure you're in the right 
locker room?" So I'm telling him I 
came to college to learn life. How 
better than in a locker room where 
all secrets are bared? He gives mo 
the basket with doubts, so I go to the 
supply man. 

Here, I'm getting a sweat shirt 
with a choice of three holes in where 
to put my head. With my head, one 
is too much. However, all I say is 
"Pfe!" Next he's handing me a pair 
shorts that droop below the knees 
like a flag at half mast. Not being 
dead, I'm naturally perturbed. "Give 
I look!" I shout. "I look like a Bloom- 
.]• Girl!" He gives me the lynx-eyed 
■tare, "You're expecting maybe an 
argument?" he says. No matter the 
shorts, what with a tight this and 
a tight that, I'm skinny already. 
Dressed, I'll be looking like a walk- 
ing elongated Kilbasa. 

I go over to dress, taking my time, 

■rely observing from where I'll 
be getting my next gymnastic ward- 
robe. One freshman to undress is 
crawling into a lower locker, so right 
away, I guess he's not being away 
from home too much. He's having 
troubles so I'm reaching between the 
slats and helping with the back but- 

As for the fourth year in a row 
I bounce out on the gym floor, my 
trreat friend the instructor flinches 
and says, "What's the matter, you 
trot a grudge against me?" I think 
maybe he's jealous because I'm the 
'•nly one taking freshman phys ed 
«ho's already signed up for more 
courses than the teacher. For four 
years he tries to get me to do the 
chin up in hopes I'll maybe slip and 
hang myself. This year for the Tirst 
time, I'm able to catch the bar with- 
"Ut his giving me a push. Hmph. 
1'ush he calls it. With one finger, tell 
me, what was he expecting? 

Bo, what's so bad ? One girl I knew, 
who's getting her diploma in her 
>>vim suit still trying to pass the 
svimatef tests. I'm passing this by 
mistake. Already, I know I can't 
swim 30 yards, but without my 
glasses, I don't see where to stop 
swimming and start sinking. 

Today, I'm meeting again my great Un the gym rioor, everybody 
fnend the phys ed instructor. With wearing sneakers but me. Me, I got 

on the yellow socks and loafers I'm 
wearing for two years in ROTC be- 
fore they're kicking me out. The in- 
structor asks me, what's the matter 
don't I read the rules that I should 
wear my sneakers? I'm gazing at 
him languorously through half-shut 
eyes. "Sorry," I murmur, "I'm need- 
ing the personal touch. You tell me." 
So he tells me, but not about the 

So, we start the exercises. Al- 
ready, watching his directions, I'm 
breathing hard from over-exertion. 
Then through 20 minutes strenuous 
workout, I'm twitching three times 
and staggering to the locker room. 
Bend over and touch the floor, he 
says! What's the matter, he's a wise 

guy? Already I'm knowing all the 

For the shower I'm taking off my 
glasses and groping by mistake three 
times around Skinner Hall and back. 
As I'm fighting my way through the 
underbrush at Wilder Hall, some 
Botany man, I don't see who, who is 
also forgetting his glasses, comes 
and classifies me as a new type pine 
one step more degenerate than Pinus 
Monophylla (See I'm not taking Hot- 
any 2 three times for nothing). 
Where he's pinning his little pink 
tag you should never know. Scutter- 
ing away, I hear three girls from 
Thatcher remarking, "I thought they 
caught him last year. He's back?" 

When we have the Physical Rating 
Tests, I'm rating a new score. Now 
there is classes A, B, C, and "Don't 
let the Russians find out about this." 
That's me. For the situps. I'm lying 
on my back when all of a sudden 
someone grabs me by the ankles, so 
I'm slapping his hands and yelling 
Fresh! I'm not that type feller! For 
the chin up I'm doing like I say 

For the running, by now I'm com- 
pletely spent, so I take my time. 
Still, as I cross the finish line, I see 
three runners staggering in behind 
me. "Professor!" I'm shouting, "Look! 

WMUA Enters 4th 
Year of Operation 
With Growth Plans 

Since 1947, when WMSC became 
the official MSC radio station, it, and 
its successor WMUA, have grown 
with the expanding university, de- 
veloping into a strong campus organ- 

The spring of 1947 found Collegian 
news of campus doings a feature at- 
traction en the newly formed station, 
which could be heard every week-day 
for two hours at 915 k.c. 

In September, 1948, WMUA was 
organized for its official opening in 
November, at which time President 
Van Meter, at the Open House pro- 
gram, inaugurated station WMUA. 

Constantly endeavoring to improve 
radio facilities, the WMUA staff and 
the 10-man policy board began by 
broadcasting on a three hour daily 
schedule, and in the service of the 
campus cause, collaborated with the 
Collegian in sponsoring the Heart 
Drive. The station held a Christmas 
party for the children of students 
and faculty and conducted a Yule-tide 
drive for the needy families of Am- 
herst. Wayne Longill, station maim- 
ger, announced that plans were under 
way for the remodeling of the Tower 

The station was instrumental in 
fetching Miss Patti Page to the cam- 
pus for the contest arranged by I (li- 
tem, the rumpus date bureau. 

At the Connecticut Valley Confer- 
ence, in February, '49, represent.! 
tives of radio stations from Amherst 
College and Mount Hoi yoke conceived 
the idea of an inter-school network. 
While this idea was still a conception 
circulating through the agile crani- 
um8 of radio enthusiasts, a few hanlv 
inhabitants of the Tower concluded 
operations for 1949-..0 with an all- 
night pi»-final broadcast.

U.M. Freshmen Insult 
Stockbridge Team By 
Ignorance Of Name 

On Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 2f>, 
1950, two members of the freshman 
class were walking through one of 
the corridors of the Physical Edu- 
cation building when they came upon 
a room marked Stockbridge. As they 
peered curiously through the open 
door, they saw a number of men don- 
ning football uniforms. Across the 
jerseys of the uniforms were the 
letters of Stockbridge. Whereupon, 
the freshmen inquired in all serious- 
ness, "Where are you guys from, 
Stockbridge High School?" Thanks 
to the fortunate intervention of 
Coach Steve Kosakowski, the two in- 
nocent freshmen escaped the justifi- 
able anger of the team. 

When questioned about the incident, 
the freshmen replied that they had 
never heard of Stockbridge, even 
though the Stockbridge School of Ag- 
riculture forms an integral part of 
the University of Massachusetts as a 

Freshmen are fabulous! They are 
the spirit that keeps college alive, a 
positive boon to the campus. (Upper- 
classmen, do not be offended; you 
too were freshmen once.) If not for 
freshmen, what would we have as a 
subject for our features? 

The past week has been full at 
trials and tribulations for the novi- 
ces adjusting themselves to the folk- 
ways and mores of campus life. From 
the lips of the frosh themselves came 
most of the material in this story. 
But they were all impressed, in one 
way or another. 

Probably the most impressed were 
the boys taking ROTC. The impres- 
sion was, however, purely physical as 
they carried their "mili" equipment 
on their shoulders up Butterfield 
Hill. One of them told us he felt as 
if the state of Massachusetts was 
trying to smuggle in either a few 
nuggets from Fort Knox or its share 
of the Brinks loot in his pack. 

A pretty co-ed in the ciass of '54 
had but one question for the Mr. 
Anthony of our staff: "Don't you 
do anything but walk around here?" 
We had only one suggestion; she 
should have brought her roller skates. 

Convo was a big moment for the 
frosh. The speeches were encouraging 
and enlightening as was proven by 
the group of freshmen who turned 
cartwheels from the doors of the Cage 
to Goodell while singing "Fight, fi- 
yi-yight, Massachusetts." 

The two big social events for the 
freshmen went over (more or less).

Strange as it may seem, Bowker Auditorium will be the lo- 
cale of a world premiere come next March. This is said in all seri- 
ousness, for the University of Massachusetts Operetta Guild has 
become the first amateur group in the world to secure rights for 
the pr oduction of the Broadway, musical, "Brigadoon". 

The bagpipe airs and bonnir burr 
of "Brigadoon" had hardly faded, af- 
ter a professional company filled en- 
gagements last week in Springfield 
and Northampton, when the U. of M. 
Operetta Guild started to work on 
its own ambitious production of the 
Alan Lemer-Frederick Loewe classic. 

Scheduled for staging in Murch, the 
University's "Brigadoon" is expected 
to keep the large Operetta Cuild 
staff more than busy during the in- 
tervening months. Director Doric Al- 
viani was quick to point out that 
production of the Critic's Award hit 
is by far the most sizable job the 
Guild ever tackled. 

The production of the show virtu- 
ally amounts to training an entire 
ballet company. Because such a great 
part of the show must be put into 
precision dancing, numerous rehear- 
sals will be necessary. The disting- 
guishing factor in the dancing, how 
ever, will be the participation of both 
men and women. Incidentally, Scotch 
dancing of the type required in 
"Brigadoon" is the most disciplined 
dancing there is. 

Costuming presents a major diffi- 
culty since no imitation is possible. 
The cost of original costumes will 
have to be added to the $400 paid for 
the rights to stage three perform- 
ances. The Opcrettta Guild can right- 
ly challenge any other group to un- 
dertake a similar task. 

Director Alviani also says that an 
entirely new type of accompaniment 
(on this campus, that is) will be 
used. The show calls for a genuine 
Scotch piper to give it authenticity 
and the Operetta Guild w>il have one. 

Selection of the cast is already- 
underway. Professor Alviani reported 
that Robert Boland, a junior from 
Pittsficld, will play the role of Harry 
Beaton. Boland also designed scenery 
for the show which will have Howard 
Galley, a junior from Andover, as 
production stage manager. 


At the picnic, we heard, the sugges- 
tion that the boys get partners for 
the square dance caused some con- 
fusion. The shy lads all remained 
for some time in a huddle on one 
side of the room to the complete em- 
barrassment of the girls. Maybe they 
thought they were supposed toMance 
with one another. The dance on 
Saturday night found the boys in the 
dark (for more reasons than one). 
One of them said, "There must have 
been at least 15 boys to each girl." 
Another, who was less addicted to 
understatement, said, "There were 
about 5000 fellows and 30 girls." 
Whom are we to believe? 

The freshman girls, forgetting that 
the prime purpose of hazing is to 
introduce them to the campus, feel 
as if they are on display. "I might 
as well have my name in neon lights 
and a bulb shining in place of my 
nose," said one. "At least people 
wouldn't have to strain their eyes to 
find out who I am." This girl can be 
seen on top of the WMUA Tower, 
Monday through Friday from 7-10 
p.m. for a nominal fee. Tickets will 
be on sale next week in the C-Stoiv. 

In closing we should like to say 
that the interviewees for the preced- 
ing paragraphs will remain anony- 
mous for obvious reasons. Seriously 
though, we are pleased to have such 
an enthuiastic freshman class on cam- 
pus. Remember 75 plus 1 — that's the 
spirit! Keep it up, frosh (but never 
become a corny feature writer!)

Grid Frosh In Two Home Night Tilts ; Plays B C Frosh Away 

Seventy Hopefuls 
Report For Team 

Froth football got under way rath- 
. . auspiciously with an announcement 
by a golden-throated Maroon k> , 
member at the Freihman Square 
Dance of a meeting to be held later 
that evening. Seventy eager and will- 
ing athletes turned up and the basic 
running plays were described briefly 
by Coach Ball. Equipment was issued 
t i the men the next day and practice 
began in earn< 

Coach Rail found most of the squad 
out of shape, either ilightly or other- 
wise. It seems that the men are 
either partly in shape or, pardon the 

pun, portly out of it. So far practice 

been limited to fundamental 

k with the squad being divided 

into three sections so as to give each 
man more individual attention. 

There is considerable ■peed in 

backficld and this fact is one of the 
reasons why Coach Ball considers thin 
team better than last year's — at leasl 
(in paper. There is, states Red, "more 

Otential material." If variety is the 
spice of life tins team ia a pepper 
pot. The men range in size from 220 
pounds to 14.'!, a difference of ■ mere 
77 pounds. The behemoths of the 
■quad are tackle dim Csrty at 220, 
center Neil Johnson at 2(12, and guard 
Frank McNiff who tips the beam at 
215. At the opposite end of the scale 
are such featherweights as Martin 
Corcoran weighing 154, Charley St. 
Paul one pound more at 1 66, and the 
fleaweight of the team Ray Boyd who 
weighs all of 143 pounds. 

Of course it is too early to judge 
the capabilities of the men, but in a 
few days the probable achievements 
of the squad should be known to the 
athletic staff which consists" of Coach 
Red Ball, Back Coach Dick Lee, Var- 
sity football Coach Tommy Eck who, 
with Joe Masi drops in to advise and 
assist in the formation of the team. 

First Night Tilts at I'M 

The schedule, which every frosh 
must know by now starts Friday

UM Harriers 
Open Slate 
With Huskies 

Greatly weakened by the loss of 
four of last year's first seven men, 
the varsity cross country team is 
faced with a rebuilding job if it i3 
to repeat last year's win over North- 
oastern and continue the good record 
compiled by its predecessois over the 
recent years. The nucleus for this 
year's team includes four lettermen 
from last year and several others 
with varying degrees of experience. 

Beading up the list at this time is 
George Coding, who was forced out 
midway through the season last year 
with a bad ankle, but who is now in 
fine shape after a summer of road 
racing. Co-captains Harry Hopkins 
and Damon Phinney, Hal Allen, soph- 
omore surprise in the two-mile last 
spring, and Al Duncan, much im- 
proved lately, will probably comprise 
the next four to cross the line, bat 
not necessarily in that order. Allen 
will be the man to watch as the sea- 
son progresses, l.ou Buck, best of the 
frosh last year, Mai Macniven, Jim

Looking Things Over 

by Joe Broude 

Not too many years have passed 
since the time when a college foot- 
ball game was the campus highlight 
of the week because of the old do-or- 
die spirit displayed by the team mem- 
bers and the students. The only re- 
ward the grid players wanted was 
the chance to be seen demonstrating 
their skills which they arduously 
practiced day in and day out. They 
were motivated by the will to win for 
their school and for the students who 
without fail each Saturday afternoon 
rocked the stands with cheers and 

Times have changed, except 
for the Red Sox who are again 
struggling for third place, and with 
the passing of time football has be- 
come a business. A big business and 
one which has not put thousands of 
students through school and thus giv- 
en them an education. It is a business 
whose training with few exceptions 
is no longer fun but strictly hard 

varsity squads will meet in the after- , the team, or to push back some of the | work. Upon every play may rest the 

noon. Season finale takes place on 
the 17th of November with Trinity 
College coming to the reservation. 

The following is the unedited, un- 
touched, unadulterated remains of 
this article as turned in by our frosh 
reporter: You may be asking your- 
self right now, specifically the upper- 
ismen, why should I attend the 
Frosh football team games when I 
can watch the varsity instead'.' The 
senior B are excused from the games 

first mentioned five. 

The first meet of the year will be 
here on Saturday afternoon against 
Northeastern, over the new four-and- 
a-third mile course. This course runs, 
through the campus more than the 
old course and affords a much better 
chance for spectators to watch the 

coach's job or an athlete's tuition. It 
is a case of either producing or no

which has brought millions of dollars 
through the portly gates of colleges 
and universities.

Briggsmen Open 

With Dartmouth 

The Redmen hooters open the I960 
Soccer campaign Saturgiy morning 
at Hanover, New Hampshire, agar 3t 
a power-laden Dartmouth outfit in 
the first of three games away fru.n 
home. Union College and Williams 
will be the other two games for the 
Redmen, and both will supply opposi- 
tion the equal to, if not better than 
Dartmouth. Williams, in the estima- 
tion of Coach Larry Brigs will have 
one of the better squads in the area. 

The strength of this year's team 
lies with the present seniors and the 
up-from-the-frosh sophomores. Gone 
are Stu Gunn, Lyn Jorge and stand- 
outs of the Winton and Fitzgerald 
type, but besides this year's seniors, 
the soph contingent has turned out 
some men on whom the burden in the 
future games will fall. 

Supplanting Gunn in the nets will 
be Bill Whitmore. Maybe an "eventu- 
ally" should be put in that first sen- 
tence, for Bob Johnston has been 
showing great progress and may g'.'t 
the starting assignment. Bob is a 
senior who will probably finish out 
this season as first string net-tender, 
with Whitmore at goal for the next 
two seasons. Of course that's looking 
pretty far ahead, but Bill has three 
years left, plenty of time to polish 
up, as the experts say it. 

Others up from the frosh are Cur-

The I960 Intia-Muial touch foot- 
ball schedule gets underway shortly 
as the dorms, fraternities, et al com- 
mence another season in which Berk- 
shire will attempt to hold its Intra- 
Mural Crown and the others will try 
to take the honors away from the 
dorm which seems to cop just about 
everything in sight. 

Last fall saw three leagues with 
AEPi defeating Brooks in the semi- 
finals, before bowing to the Berk- 
shire Bombers in the finals. It would 
be easier to predict the world situa- 
tion than the winners of this year's 
competition. Berkshire will \ field 
another powerful club, its champion- 
ship outfit of a year ago returning 
just about intact. 

There were three leagues last year, 
but how many there will be this 
son will depend on the number of 
teams. The fraternities have their 
own conference. If some of the dorms 
and independents turn out more than 
one team there may be three lea. 

Last year, with the installment of 
lights, the games were played on the 

practice football field where hitherto 
they had taken place in the Cage. The 
only drawback seated to be the ina- 
bility of some of the runners to cut 
as sharply u<, they lia.l done on the 
i dirt floor in the Cage. Outside of 
that, come cold or colder there was 
always a good turnout. This ; 
should find the competition hot and 
heavy with the result that Saturday 
afternoons* (and Fridays when the 
frosh play) won't be the only tinus 
the campus comes to the gridii 

Bright Prospects 
For Frosh Runners 

With a goodly number of experi- 
enced high school runners out for 
the squad, freshman cross country 
hopes look very bright. Furtherm,.,, . 
the team is being coached by this 
school's outstanding cross country 
runner, Louie Clough, now attending 
grad school. Approximately twenty- 
five candidates are working out, ami 
all others who may be interested 
should contact varsity coach Lew- 
Derby. Kxperience is by m» means 
necessary, only helpful. 

Those with the more outstanding 
records include Lee ('hisholm, Marry 
Aldrich, Plo Angelini, Hank Knapp, 
John Murray, Charlie Gollub, Bob 

steer, George Hesfallin, and 96b 

Russ e l l. Some of these a-, capable 
of giving the varsity I - ,wl rare. 
However, it is worth pointing • 
that previous records are often mean- 
ingless, by way of encouraavmenl to 
those not mentioned here. Then have 

bete in the f, ■, y. 

where luminaries have fallen by tin- 
way and nobodies have come up with 
the will and the courage to take OVOT 
the top spots. Only the race itself can 
tell the story. 

The fir.-t meet of the will 
be an ir: formal one with Amher.M 
October I in which all candidates will 
participate. For the rest of the year 

they will be pointing for the \e\v 
Englands and s much bett> r spot than 
their eighth of last year. From all 
Indications, the Little Indians should 
prove to be a combine tough to beat.

Opening Convocation . . . 

Continued from page 1 
ber of the University's Placement 


The 800-member freshman class is 
a third larger than any previous 
freshman class in the history of the 
University, and its admittance was 
made possible by the completion of 
new dormitories and laboratory build- 
ings during the past year. 

President Van Meter pointed out 
to the new students that their "cam- 
pus community is made up of indiv- 
iduals from a great diversity of fam- 
ily backgrounds and from many so- 
cial environments, and it represents 
a great variety in matters of religi- 
ous and racial and national origins." 

"Put your scholarship first," he 
concluded. "Students do not live by 
scholarships alone, but they don't last 
long without it." 

The opening convocation program 
also included an invocation by Rev. 
Arnold Kenseth, director of religious 
activities; remarks by Dr. Vernon 
Helming, head of the university com- 
mittee on student life; and a pro- 
gram of songs and band music led 
by Prof. Doric Alviani and Mr. Joseph 
Contino of the department of fine 

Football Rally and 
Dance to Welcome 
In Bates Weekend 

Highlighting Football Fathers 
Weekend will be the pre-game rally 
sponsored by Adelphia and Isogon, 
tomorrow night, Friday, Sept. 29, 
starting at 6:30 in front of Butter- 
field dorm. The rally itself will be 
held in Bowker Auditorium followed 
by an Isogon Dance at Drill Hall 
lasting till 11:00 P.M. 

The parade starts at Butterfield 
and takes the following route: down 
Butterfield Hill, across in front of 
Mills and Brooks House, and down 
the Infirmary road past the girls' 
dormitories Lewis and Thatcher, turn 
left down you-should-excuse-the ex- 
pression Lover's Lane, left by the 
Abbey and Hamlin, and down by 
Goessman and into Bowker Auditori- 
um. In order to get a most complete 
following the fraternities and soror- 
ities are asked to meet at Butterfield 
and proceed from there. Chairman 
Harvey Segal suggested that the more 
cars in the parade, the better the 
affair would be. 

The Bowker program will open with 
a band introduction followed by 
cheers led by Head Cheerleader Alice 
Chorebanian. After another band 
number a five minute skit will be 
presented by Bob Pehrson, Bill Mas- 
sidda, and Frank Sottile. An Indian 
chant cheer will precede Mr. Warren 
P. McGuirk, director of athletics. 

Joan Hartley, at this time will 
dance her interpretation of "Indian 
Trails" accompanied by the band un- 
der the direction of Joseph Contino. 

Coach Tommy Eck will then intro- 
duce the other coaches, the members 
of the football team, and in conjunc- 
tion with Football Fathers Day, the 
dads of the football players. Follow- 
ing this, Capt. Marty Anderson will 
be called upon to speak. After a final 
cheer the reception will swing into 
its grand finale. 

After the rally, Drill Hall will 
be open to the campus for a Rally

Research Grant 
Given To Barrett 

Announcement was made last week 
by Federal Security Administrator 
Oscar R. Ewing of a grant of $4200 
to Harold W. Barrett of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts for medical 

The money goes to him on recom- 
mendation of the National Advisory 
Health Council, for studies on the 
"mechanism and anti-thyroid drugs." 

His grant is one of 165, totaling 
$4,708,766, made to research workers 
in 39 states. The studies to be made 
cover such fields as pediatrics, physi- 
ology, biochemistry, hematology, nu- 
trition, and psychiatry. One of them 
provides for a continuing investiga- 
tion of some 166 persons from the 
pre-natal period to death and through 
several generations of their descen- 
dants. The purpose is to correlate 
physical, mental, and emotional fac- 
tors over a long period, noting 
changes in teeth, head skeleton, sin- 
uses, and lungs as revealed by peri- 
odic X-rays. 

Chorale Plans 
Extensive Program 

Professor Doric Alviani, chairman 
of the department of fine arts, has 
announced that members of the Uni- 
versity Chorale will work in conjunc- 
tion with the Operetta Guild in the 
production of "Brigadoon", scheduled 
for staging in March. 

The announcement comes in accor- 
dance with the plan of the Univer- 
sity Chorale to put in more campus 
appearances this year than in its 
three previous years. 

The chorale was conceived as a 
highly disciplined, precision chorus of 
the most select campus singers, cap- 
able of great versatility in program- 
ming and easily transported for <>tf- 
campus engagements. 

Rejecting an over-scholarly ap- 
proach in their repertoire, the chor- 
ale continues to offer a varied and 
balanced program in keeping with Di- 
rector Alviani's crusade for "dem- 
ocracy in music" and continues to 
demonstrate that music is fun for 

The chorale was founded in 1947 by 
Director Alviani, who, after 10 years 

of directing large groups organized 
into separate glee clubs for men and 
women, felt that the campus and the 
public were both ready for some mu- 
sical streamlining. As a result of his 
decision, the smaller, combined group 
of 28 mixed voices was born and made 
its first campus appearance in "Snow- 
man's Frolic" at the winter carnival. 
Its program of Gilbert and Sullivan, 
modern musical comedy hits, tradi- 
tional hymns, folk songs, spirituals 
and college selections scored an in- 
stantaneous hit. A long series of off- 
campus engagements brought the 
chorale to Boston, Springfield and 
Worcester and to other principal 
cities of Massachusetts, and last 
spring their season closed with a con- 
cert in New York City's Carnegie 
Recital Hall. 


The University Bowling League 
will begin its 1950-51 season on Mon- 
day night, October 2. Any male em- 
ployee of the University who wishes 
to bowl should contact a team cap- 
tain or L. Lawrence Taylor (Campus

Metawampe Saved 
From Embarrassment 
By Campus Hero 

A dark ami gloomy cloud settled 
over the University of Massachusetts 
when, after the opening Convocation, 
the band was informed that it wou'd 
not be able to use the Indian uniform 
worn in previous years by Bob Bert- 
ram, field major. 

Because of use in the past, the out- 
fit was in a worn-out condition s> 
that it could no longer be used with- 
out fear of it falling apart at the 
seams. What a letdown! What dis- 
appointment! What could we offer as 
an excuse to the freshmen, who had 
been led to expect to see the spirit 
of Metawampe in full array at the 
football game on Saturday? 

But as all things must come to a 
good end, in stepped the hero to save 
the day. The hero in our case was 
a multiple hero, the Senior Honorar- 
ies, Isogon and Adelphia. In spite of 
their low treasuries, they have made 
a bargain with the administration 
that they will buy a new costume if 
Bob can wear the campus antique in 
the meantime.

Senate Begins New Year, Announces 
Preparations For Coming Election 


Student Government body, better I year. People like Prexy Less, Theln. 
known as the Senate, rolled into gear Litsky, Bruce Wogan, B, 1 Costa. 

I will admit in part, Hal Mark a 
have helped to raise the ■. 
of the Senate in many ways. Cli- 
Knox did a good Job with his finances, 
and I believe that Fred Davis's Fa. 
culty Rating Program did a gm 
deal toward making student -faculty 
relations a closer knit entity. St : ; 
how much more could have beer. 
done? For every act such as Natoy. 
an's and Feinberg's letter to the tru 
tees in regard to tuition hiking, th«- 
have been dozens of lackadaisical id 
ots whose only functions have beer 
to warm up the seats in Old Chape 

There have been other cases of good 
work, of course, but I'm sure any i 
associated with the Senate Inovt 
what I mean. 

Incidentally, since the Maroon K 
is a subordinate of the Senate, I 
wonder how these men who have beer 
keeping the Maroon K«y froni ,v 
complishing their purpose ir gettinj 
into the dorms will feel when mt 
ing season corned around ard the; 
are the ones w'i> would like an % 
I've seen examples of moo psyi i 
ogy before, but never such an . v 
ample of sheer selfish stupidity u 
thi3 year's freshman class. I muj 
admit I have been impressed by i 
of these freshmen, so impressed thai 
I doubt if they ever will find too wel- 
come a hand in anything I na\. : 
do with. As I feel, so I know do qu > 
a few other upperclassmen. Tin 
leaders, whether one or 25 in a." 
show the obtuseness of the typicu 
ragpickers. I'm sure they will fir.; 
their abundant enthusiasm doub.. 

for the third year in a bit of an an- 
emic condition. The loss of Vice Pres- 
ident and secretary plus some of its 
outstanding leaders left it in a bit 
of a recommencement lurch. 

President Bill Less, however, 
started to reorganize our school poli- 
tics by announcing plans for Senate 
elections on Monday, October 9, with 
the new senators to be sworn in on 
Oct. 10. In conjunction with these 
elections, Mr. Less stated that a ref- 
erendum to raise the student Activ- 
ities Fee by 20 cents will be placed 
on the ballot as advised by Cliff Knox, 
former chairman of student finances. 
This amount, although perhaps neg- 
ligible in itself, added up will prove 
a great benefit to such organizations 
as WMUA, Winter Carnival, Adel- 
phia, Isogon, Maroon Key, and Scrolls 
among others. Much of the funds, I 
understand will be designated for 
WMUA, in order to expand the fa- 
cilities already in use. Since this 
extra bit may make the difference 
between station and static, it seems 
worthwhile to take time out to makr 
a simple "X". 

Speaking of elections, I sincerely 
hope that this year the campus body- 
as a whole gets off its mental derriere 
and elects its representatives for 
their ability, and not as a vent for 
their most juvenile and asinine dem- 
onstrations. Too often some throw- 
back to the slack-jawed Antedeluvian 
era is carried into office because the 
students are too apathetic to care, or 
haven't got the guts to fight against 
some strong armed blubber-mouthed 
slob who through dirty tactics or just 
plain bullying fights his way into 
office. Through these slipshod tactics. 

the whole Senate is hogtied before j Alpha Epsilon Fl 

it starts. It cannot survive a degen- Alpha Kpsilon 1M is honored to ar,

prostitized organization, takes away National Headquarters of Alpha Ep 
from the students the onJy field in silon PI for having the best advis • 

which they can iron out effectively 
their problems with the Administra- 

In the three years since this r.ew 
type of Senate was inaugurated, I've 
watched it slip from top rank to med- 
iocre merely because the few members 
of note who found ways to get elected 
could not cope with the solid mass 
of imbecility that flooded the Senate- 
floor. Assuredly, there have been > 
numbr of extremely capable persons 
elected, and in my opinion the Sen- 
ate has risen in stature in the last 

among some fifty-five chapters of th- 
fraternity spread from Boston Un;v- 
ersity to UCLA. The cup was award 
ed to Dr. Arthur Levine of the Fort 
Technology department for his 
ceptional work in advising the frater- 
nity through some rather strenuous 
times last year. 

The cup will be kept by the local 
chapter until the end of the year, a: 
which time it will be returned t 
National Headquarters. The cup « 
be retired when a local chapter « ■':•

History of Radio Station . . . 

Continued from page :'. 
judicious use of war surplus material, 
equipment from Devens, and the 
painstaking labor of its staff, WMUA 
technicians augmented the then in- 
adequate facilities usually associated 
with penury, creating, rather remark- 
ably, the present studio. 

The following October, WMUA, at 
its gala Open House at Bowker, cele- 
brated the official opening of its new- 
ly-remodelled studios, and was pre- 
sented with its charter by President 
Van Meter. The Collegian announced 
the inauguration of WMUA News, in 
order to acquaint the campus with 
the behind-the-scenes activities of the 
station, which was now operating on 
an eight-hour day, news in itself. 

In the spring of 1950, the afore- 
mentioned inter-college network be- 
came a reality. The student-operated 
radio stations of Smith, Amherst, and 
U of M joined forces in what is be- 

lieved to be the first direct-line inter- 
collegiate broadcasting network in 
this country. This network, incident- 
ally, recently added AIC to its roster, 
and hopes and intentions for further 
expansion are taking concrete form. 
Network officials have been ap- 
proached with application for mem- 
bership by Trinity and Wesleyan. 

The growth of this campus or- 
ganization is truly astounding, but 
efforts on the part of its staff for 
constant expansion and improvement 
have not, and will not, diminish 

Credit is extended to Wayne L*Bf- 
ill, Station Manager; Roy Pitman, 
Business Manager; Dave Meltzer, 
Public Relations Director; Fred Carl- 
son and Bob Bates, master techni- 
cians; Prof. Walter Smith, Mr. RoV 
«H McCartney of the UNS, Mr. An- 
thony Zaitz, Mr. Doric Alviani, Mr. 
Walter Stelkovis, and the entire staff 
of WMUA for making our radio sta- 
tion what it is.

bans, Vermont, and a graduate of 
Connecticut College for Women. 
received the M.S. degree from the 
University of Massachusetts last 
June after serving as a research fel- 
low since 1048. 

a complete lack of the qualities of 
being a good sport. The shoddy tactics 
pulled by the freshmen on what in 
my opinion and in that of many oth- 
ers is the best and first truly active 
Maroon Key since the war can only 
be described as mob violence, with all 
the insanity, inanity, and the clever 
manipulation by obviously calcula- 
ting leaders that goes with it. 

Somehow, it all reminded me of an 
excellent picture 1 saw this summer, 
Intruder in the I'ust in which the 
negro is jeered by the white trash 
crowds. Imagine the similarity, of a 
small group of Maroon Keys, on bus- 
iness at the Collegia*, being met by 
50 or 60 frosh. Each yells, "Get his 
hat" or "Let's throw them into the 
pond" but all are too obviously cow- 
ards to follow through any actions. 
Deserted by their leaders or loader, 
no fool, who surely wasn't going to 
risk his neck other than verbally, the 
men skulked in the darkness like a 
pack of vermin-ridden rata The II . 
roon Key could have starter! a battle. 
I Instead, they handled the situation 
admirably, talked sensibly, and I'm 
sure made much of the crowd feel 
like fools. 

Some of you may say, it's just the 
same old foolishness, it's none on 
fore. But let's stop and think. Up to 
now I don't think anyone can say that 
the Maroon Key has adequately ac- 
complished its purpose Of raising spi- 
rit. Since the infamous green beanie 
deal they have persisted in merely 
antagonising. Some of these former 
member! have tried hard, but the 
overall picture ia not of the best. 

This year's Maroon Key, however, 

has taken a stand that in helping the 
freshmen has been unequalled. I've 
watched them, through registration 

Orchestra Rehearsal 

The University Orchestra, under 
the direction of recently appointed 

Joseph Contino, will hold its first 
rehearsal Thursday, October 5, at 
7 p.m. in Skinner Hall Auditorium. 

All players who are interested, 
faculty as well as students, are in- 


out of their way to meet the frosh. 
I went to the hill dorms with many 
of them to meet the frosh. In their 
Hazing program, they have droppe 1 
such asininities as jumping numerals, 
avoiding the center walk of Bowker, 
and other juvenile activities that were 
a part of the program. They have 
kept the beanies, a tradition in most 
every college and the signs by which 
the upperclassmen may get to know 
the incoming class. The freshmtn 
haven't been around long enough to 
appreciate the aid these signs give. 
And incidently they are required to 
wear these until the rope pull Satur- 
day. This is not merely a Maroon 
Key Statement, it is official. The early- 
risings have killed off no-one yet, and 
actually give the class a sense if 
unity, of belonging as a group, the 
first thing they do together. Yet the 
freshman, through the machinations 
of a few have resisted this by barrels 
of water. One Maroon Key was nar- 
rowly missed by such a one, not mere- 
ly the water but the barrel besides. 
Tuesday morning, less than 200 fn 
men turned out for the ting. Yet that 
night led by these same barrel pith- 
eis, they came blathering about try- 
ing to raise spirit. Does raising spirit 
mean an attempt to incite a riot. I i 
pick a deliberate fight with the men 
who are selected to guide them 
through their first association with 
campus life? The reasoning makes 
DM sick to my stomach. If spin 
to be raised, then why is it lackii:. 
the sings? Just why has the whole 

resistance sprung up so drastically? 

Let's look into the background. 

Shown above is last year's Hope Pull. This year's edition will be held 
this Saturday at the College Pond after the Bates Game.

by David Tat ha in 
Heave-heave-heave— Splash! And .so 
50 freshmen joined the goldfish in a 
vain attempt to save the honor of the 
class of T>4. That was the story of 
the traditional rope pull between the 
frosh and sophomores last Saturday 
afternoon as the freshmen lost their 
83rd straight. 

The frosh certainly tried. The four 
stalwarts who carried the rope 
through the liquid mud to the shore 
did a magnificant job in keeping the 
first 10 yards dry. So what if the 
sophs threw in the remaining M 
yards? Details.

The first quarter found the Bobcats 
in possession of the ball for the 
jn-eater part of the 15 minute period 
although they could not even pene- 
trate into Redmen territory. This 
Bobcat superiority was due to the 
fact that the Eckmen were penalized 
for no less than 35 yards and the 
backfield developed a case of fum-

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture began its thirty-second 
year Monday, October 2, with a peak enrollment of approximately 
450 students. 

The freshman class totaled approximately 250 and included 
a number of second and third generation sons and daughters of 
Stockbridge graduates, it was announced this week by Roland 

H. Verbeck, short course director cit 

the School. 

Entering the senior elasf **• 800 

students returning from summer 
placement work ranging in time from 
three to seven months, and spread- 
ing geographically from England U> 

"Our own Stockbridge graduates 
are our best missionaries," Director 
Verbeck said in pointing out that over 
25 per cent of the returning aenior 
class did their placement work on 
agricultural enterprises owned or op- 
erated by Stockbridge graduates. 

Effects of the Korean war were 
evidenced by several enrollment can- 
cellations from men entering, or r< 
entering, the Armed Forces. 

"One of the most interesting as- 
pects of this year's enrollment," Di- 
rector Verbeck said, "is continued 
evidence, however subtle, of a 'back 
to the farm' trend." Director Ver- 
beck cited as an example of this 
trend the 1!>5<» Animal Husbandry- 

"Only 25 per cent of the Animal 
Husbandry class are students from 
farms. The balance are second or 
third generation city-bred students 
who have come to Stockbridge for 
guidance in leaving the cities and 
returning to agricultural vocation*." 

Speaking of veteran enrollments, 
Director Verbeck said, "About 25 per 
cent of the total Stockbridge en 
rollment this year will be veterans. 
This is a marked drop from the high 
point of veterans' enrollment in 194H 
when about 75 per cent of the Stock- 
bridge students were veterans. 

Yet, Stockbridgr's 1950 enrollment 
is a record one. Civilian students fill 
the gaps left by veterans as fast as 
vacancies appear. Stockbridge is still 
able to accept only a very Mnall num- 
ber of state applications." 

Highlights In Monday's freshman 
registration included the enrollment 
of Gilbert Gaston and Tom Moriarty, 
President and Vice-President ptSfl 
lively, of FFA.

To Those Responsible 

Do you as one of the many members of the administration 
who was asked to advise or aid the Band in their time of acute 
distress last week, really feel that you did everything you could 
to help? Red tape is annoying and seemingly a necessary evil but 
lack of personal interest is unforgiyeable. Please, for every or- 
ganization's sake on campus, think it over! 


Index Or ...? 

It would seem unlikely that you, the student body, would 
have to be urged to act on the praiseworthy suggestion of the 
1950 Yearbook staff . . . that, a new name for the yearbook be 
chosen John Thomas's letter to the editor on this page has intel- 
ligently outlined the reasons for such a change and further com- 
ment would be of little value. However, we do request that every 
student submit now. his or her choice (taken from Thomas s list 
or one of vour own) for a new yearbook name, to the Collegian. 
Your choice, vour name, and address are all we ask. It is very little 
to ask of a student who in return is receiving the finest permanent 
college publication a student could find anywhere. Send in those 
suggestions for changing the name of the Index by the hundreds, 
not by the dozens! 

This Exchanging World 

From the NORWICH GUIDON, Sept. 21: 

Freshmen can learn ... 

SOPHOMORES: Want their girls to be like cigarettes- 
slender and trim. All in a row to be selected at will ; set aflame, 
and when the flame has subsided, discarded, only to select another. 

JUNIORS: Want their girl to be like a cigar— they are more 
expensive; make a better appearance, last longer, and if the brand 
is good, they are seldom discarded. 

A SENIOR: Wants his girl to be like his pipe— something 
he becomes attached to, knocks gently, but lovingly, and takes 
great care of it at all times. (A man will give a cigarette, he will 
offer you a cigar, but he will never share his pipe.) 

From A.I.C.'s YELLOW JACKET of Sept. 9: 

The AIC librarv has acquired a new piece of equipment, the 
Contoura machine to relieve students of extra work when engag- 
ing in research The machine is a portable photocopying device 
which will copy anything written, printed or drawn in any color 
of ink, pencil, or crayon. 

From the CONNECTICUT CAMPUS of Sept. 29: 

We do not see why people should not cut in ahead of others 
in the chow line. In fact, the only purpose of having a chow line, 
psvchologists think now, is to give certain repressed persons a 
chance to express themselves. 

You and I should not interfere with these characters when 
they slip in ahead of us because we may fustrate them and they 
might throw a tantrum or a conditioned reflex as a result. In 
which case we would be soundly berated for our shortsightedness 
by a small man wearing bifocals and carrying a cane which prob- 
ably conceals a sword. 

From the AMHERST STUDENT of Sept. 25: 

Could anything be more self-evident than the necessity to 
require freshmen to behave in the manner which befits their po- 
sition in our college? . 

Why alreadv I have been greeted by certain freshmen in 
such inarticulate" ways as "Hi" and "Howdy". Sometimes I am 
not greeted at all. And Amherst Tradition has suffered. 

From the CONNECTICUT CAMPUS of Sept. 25: 

To the Editor: ' 

A highly exasperating situation has prevailed on campus for 
the past few vears. It has reached ; its culmination this year I be- 
lieve. That is the constant changing of the textbooks required 

for courses. 

When for five courses 1 am required to buy all new text books 
because they have been changed I believe this calls for some quick 

Dear Sir: 

I have just finished reading a itinging article which 
appeared in th«- Collegian for the week of September 
25. My only conclusion is that at least one Upper 
classman has taken a dislike to the newest class on 
campus. I h*ve delegated myself as representative 
to the cla>s in order that a few things, as I see thei.i. 
may lie explained. 

Upon arrival at this campus, and as soon as I was 
able to talk to a few fellows, it became obvious that 
there was an almost instinctive fear of the Maroon 
Key, a fear which had grown from ignorance and 
rumour. Rumours have a curious way about them 
that alows them to spread rapidly through crowded 
cafeterias and down dormitory hallways. As a result 
of this gossip, a peculiar sort of cautious bravado 
and uncertainty developed in most boys who had heard 
anything of "the men with big paddles", and by the 
time this college organ had announced that they would 
pay a visit to the dorms, we were ready to exchange 
dunking for dunking in the college pond. You see, no 
one had bothered to explain that the chief function of 
this group was orientation instead of the general opin- 
ion maintained by the frosh that the Key was out to 
give every underclassmen a "roughing up". I do not 
say that freshman conduct was entirely creditable at 
all times, for it certainly was not, but I do say that 
little more could be expected from an ill-informed 
student body. 

Friday morning of the week of the 2oth, very nearly 
all men of the freshman class were up and around and 
out of doors to welcome the men of the Maroon Key 
as they came up to see if the freshman class had any 
spirit. A very good time was had by all and I feel 
that they left us with the idea that there was some 
energetic spirit in the majority of us and that we 
were the victims of confused ideas and poor, warped 

What were referred to as "shoddy tactics" by a 
Collegimi reporter, I should like to call the products 
of young men who were trying to emphasize their 
dislike of the dunking proposal, the rumors of unfair 
tactics in the rope pull and other related subjects. 
Undoubtedly, some of the methods used against the 
Key were all wrong but why these simple mistakes 
of the frosh were referred to as "inane" and clever 
manipulations" I am entirely uncertain. 

Nothing can be said by myself in connection with 
the disgraceful attempt, at leadership or organization 
of the freshman class, to deny or negate anything 
that has been said already. It is without doubt a 
black mark on the record of the class of 1954 and it 
goes without saying that we all regret the sympathy 
with which some of us listened to its schemes. 

Let me say in conclusion that we have learned a 
great deal about campus life and customs in one short 
week, thanks to the indulgence of the Key and we will 
strive to set ourselves in the pattern which most befits 
the humble frosh. We find it a little hard to accept 
such a bitter rebuttal but we hope that there will 
be no need for a reocurrence of this acid attack. We 
hope that, due to the freshman class's quick recovery 
from misunderstanding, the upper classmen will look 
toward us just a little more leniently. 

Sincerely yours. 

Bill Hodges 

Class of T)4 


The COLLEfilAN commends Bill for his clear, con- 
cise, and sincere opinion . . . and on the basis of the 
ability shown in this letter invites him to join the staff. 

Dear Editor, 

On behalf of the 1950 Index Editorial Board, 1 
hope that the 1950 yearbook has met with the satis- 
faction and approval of the student body. Roland 
Reidy, former Editor-in-Chief, and I, would like to 
take this opportunity to thank the past and present 
members of the staff for a job beautifully conceived 
and brilliantly executed. 

Because it was noted that a majority of the students 
had little opportunity to learn and sing the revered 
songs of the school, the 1950 Index was planned and 
designed in hopes that it would fulfill this need, and 
simultaneously foster an even more intimate love for 
and pride in the University.. 

Although rather sweeping changes were made in 
the publishing of the yearbook, the 1950 Board did 
not quite realize the fulfillment of all its recommenda- 
tions. Unrealized was its desire to change the name, 
"Index", to a name in line with the present "Redmen" 
theme of the University, and in tradition with the 
guardian spirit of our hallowed grounds . . . Chief 
Mettewampe. The Board did wish to recommend, with 
the utmost of devotion, and with the deepest of hu- 
mility, that the studevt hndy net to change the name 
of the yearbook from its outmoded, antiquated, an<! 
meaningless title, "The Index", to one synonymous with 
the noni-de-plume of our athletic greats. A name such 
as "The Wigwam", The Tomahawk", "The Redman', 01 
the like will do much to further the interest of the 
yearbook and hence afford an even greater recogni- 
tion to our beloved University and alma mater. 

In hopes that sometime, somewhere, in the very 
near future I shall have the privilege of viewing a 
bigger and better yearbook, I am .... 

Sincerely yours, 

J. Thomas 
• • Class of '"i0 

Dear Editor: 

Last week there appeared in tins newspapei 
article entitled "Looking Things Over". It pictu 
modern college football as a big business in 
most of the participant! were either looking foi 
livelihood or a scholarship. "Upon every play may 
the coach's job or an athlete's tuition", states 
author, and then goes on to say that a football pla 
should take all the scholarship awards he can get. 

Now, I'm no Gabriel Heater, bat I do not haw • 
be to say that it's a sad state of affairs we find our- 
selves in when people talk like that. Football on the 
college level big business! I wonder if the author of 
that article ever watched a college football game? 

How about it Reebenacker? When you hand that 
ball off, do you treat it as you would a satchel full of 
union jack, or a little piece of pig skin that may 
through your efforts, win fame for your alma mater? 
How about that Smith, Szurek, Nichols, Warren, Bick- 
nell, Turcotte, Henrickson, Benoite, Anderson, Beau- 
lac, Gleason, DeGaimmarino, and all the rest of you? 
Robbins and Adams and Graham too. When you se» 
the opponent rushing towards your goal line, do yon 
picture winged dollars flying out of reach, or do you 
just see a ball player with a uniform different from 
yours, trying to take a hard fought game away from 
you. Is the possibility of breaking your leg or your 
neck or what have you, incidental to the monetary 
rewards you receive? I may be naive, but I think 
there is a true motive for your playing ball. The one 
captain Marty Anderson had in mind Friday night 
when he said "and we'll bring back that ball". Ander- 
son and his squad seemed to me to be more than just 
a bunch of business executives addressing an audience 
of stockholders. 

To me, they were sincere competitors ready to fight 
for the school they represented. Fellows who would 
feel it in their hearts if they won or lost a ball game. 
not in their pocket books. They were thrilled to see 
Bowker packed to the point of overflow; to hear bells 
and whistles and Model T horns, and fellow students 
cheering them on. 

No, that march by torchlight from Butterfield to 
Bowker was no journey of debtors coming to bestow 
financial gifts on a few chosen individuals. It was a 
gang of faithful REDMEN, on their way to show their 
team that they were fully behind the maroon and 
white, win or lose, "they seemed to shout in their 
hoarse voices "Your our team. You lose and so do we." 
They hollored their approval and support Friday night. 
and showed it again in their attendance on Saturday. 
Yes, and they'll show it again on every Saturday after 

"The old pep", as my old man used to refer to en- 
thusiasm over a game, may be completely lacking in 
a few individuals. There may be some who come here 
because it's less expensive than other Universities. We 
may have a few white brothers in our teepee who do 
not know of the true spirit of the Redmen. To those, 
let them follow behind, they may learn, they may not. 
We won't worry about them. Put on your plaid cap 
Tex; don your beanies you dampened diehard fresh- 
men! Everybody, let's go! Gather your arrows and 
tomahawks and feathers and squaw maidenform and 
her stout hearted sisters. All together well see the 
boys through from now till turkey time. To Malik 
we may be capitalist slaves, but to hell with Malik and 
all the rest who doubt our honest earnest endeavor to 
uphold the name of our fine University. Players, cheer- 
leaders, musicians, and fans alike, we have more love 
for America's number one college sport and all the 
fine traditions behind it, than anyone could have for 
a bankroll. 

Anthony Umina 


Mr. Umina s letter has touched me deeply and as the 
tears roll doun my eyes I do remember that the column 
to uhich he refers states that "football is a business" 
and that "uhateter they can get they should take.' 
There is no doubt that Mr. Umina is no Gabriel Heater 
or he would never infer that the larger universities uith 
"the old pep" to uhich his father refers is not founded 
on big bn sines.* today. 

Does Mr. Umina actually believe that Holy Cross 
and Harvard change coaches because they lacked spirit: 
Could he possibly believe that the best high school 
athletes go to Columbia and Michigan because they are 
in love uith their traditions? 

The column in no way gives reason "to doubt our 
honest endeaior to uphold the name of our fine I'ni- 
versify" and so no one need bother going to hell. As 
for the players, cheerleaders, musicians, and fans Mi**! 
tie assure you that we do love America ' s number out 
college sport but believe probably only a feu betide- 
M>\ Uniin.i u r,nlJ trade it for a bankroll. 

— Looking Things Over 


Mr. Robert J. Morrissey, Veterans' Coordinator 
for the University, feels that a partial correction on 
the Collegian article published last week is nere--»ry 
for more complete understanding and clarity. 

The following is a statement from Mr. MbHis**7 : 
"Veterans are responsible for a proportionate anvunt 
of tuition, books, and fees incurred during their period 
of entitlement when such charges are over and a!> ,Vfl 
the alloted proportion if their entitlement is exhausted 
or ends any time during the academic year." 



by "You Should Excuse the Expression' 
Gin Leccese 

At I- o'clock Friday noon, Ruthie Shorer walked up to Har- 
vev Segal, and commiserated, "Isn't it too bad that the band won't 
, H at the rally or at the game. It was the first that Harvey, chair- 
man of said rally heard of the affair and the first he learned of 
a situation which engende'red a staggering amount of red-tape, 
apathy and sheer wastefulness and bigotry that pervades both 
nor student and Administrative body today. 

Our primary example today is the band, but this is merely 
rt sample — a unit of the complications which beset our campus. 
The situation is this: the band has not the members to do an ade- 
quate job, nor has it the time or place for adequate rehearsals. 
Throughout the week, meeting with disappointment and frustra- 
tion on every turn, the band was shown that neither the students 
nor the Administration cared to do too much to alleviate its dire 
position. After a hectic week in which little rehearsal was pos- 
sible, the band gave up and quit. The news travelled from pillar 
to post from one Administrative group to another without much 
accomplished. Each said, "That's too bad, why don't you see so- 
and-so." Finally after such experiences as students having sched- 
uled classes during convo despite Administration rules, which in 
this case was ironed out, and being criticized by men in high po- 
sitions for doing a "Poor job" after one rehearsal at said convo, 
the band was told that things were to be looked into. They were 
riven Saturday morning off, and after all day practicing, got a 
scant 32 men out on the field that afternoon. Still even this tem- 
porary allowance of time proves nothing conclusive. As a matter 
of fact one band member finds that he gets eight demerits, a fine. 
and a quiz he is not allowed to make up because of a cut that the 
Dean's office refuses to accept since they were not informed of 
the plans for band practice Saturday morning. 

When they ask for help, they are met with accusing looks 
as it* to say, no other organization is doing so much griping. But 
let's look at the picture more closely. During the football season. 
the band is called upon to appear once a week with a different 
program, knowing the schedule of events, the marching down pat 
and all kinks ironed out. No other organization is faced with this 
same problem. How on earth can the campus expect a decent per- 
formance if these men cannot practice? The situation is by no 

means settled. ... . 

Two solutions appear. The first is that a special time be let 
up in order that the band be able to practice. This immediately 
runs into the problem of freshman girls. They cannot practice 
nights, and others cannot practice days. The plan of studying from 
5 to 6 is also at odds for this reason: there is no incentive pro- 
vided to do so. The band is treated like a bar sinister cousin to 

InfoC enter Formed 
For DM Students 
Subject To Draft 

The organization of a new military 
information center, located in Mr. 
Robert J. Morrissey's office in South 
College, was announced by President 
Van Meter. 

The purpose of this center, accord- 
ing to Mr. Morrissey, is to centralize 
all information concerning the post- 
ponement of induction for students 
subject to selective service, and for 

All students who are subject to se- 
lective service and who have already 
had their physical examination and 
been informed that they are to be en- 
listed, are invited to visit the military 
information center. The center may 
then request postponement of induc- 
tion for the academic year. 

Those who are members of a re- 
serve may call at the center as soon 
as they receive orders to report for 
a physical. Policies for deferments 
of reservists vary for each branch, sn 
a listing here would be impractical. 

Maroon Key Seen as Freshmen 
Benefactors By Class of '54 

by Ron Murray 

It's about time some of us Freshmen took a serious look at 
the most valuable of the many keys which we have managed to 
accumulate up to date. During our first week on campus we found 
ourselves drifting about not unlike so many fish at sea. 

With due respect to the Scrolls, we see that the boys of the 
Maroon Key certainly did more than their share of helping us 
out of those jams to which very few pitifully green freshmen find 
themselves immune.

ing a Bates pass on the visitor's 46- 
yard line. On the following play Ree- 
benacher handed the ball to Ander- 
son who lateralled back to the out- 
standing sophomore quarterback for 
a gain of 22 yards. On the next three 
plays Beaulac and Gleason combined 
to power their way to the 10-yard 
line. Again Reebenacher shoveled a 
pass to Captain Anderson who scooted 
around left end for the TD. Speak 
converted the point to make the score 
read UM— It, Bates— 0. As the first 
half ended, the Redmen were again 
<>n the march with Anderson passing 
to Beaulac deep in Bates territory. 

The third quarter opened with the 
Kckmen being heavily penalized once 
more. On a fourth down on the Bates 
46-yard line, the Redmen punted into 
the end zone, where Nate Boone of 
Bates fumbled and alert Johnny 
Nichols from Middleboro recovered it 
for the third tally. At the end of the 
quarter, we found the Bobcats pene- 
trating the deepest they could all 
afternoon— to the Mass. 38-yard line. 
From there the Bobcats punted to 
the 20-yard marker, from where the 
Redmen were penalized back to their 
own 5-yard line. With their backs to 
the wall Reebernacher, Beaulac, and 
Anderson fought their way back into 
Bates territory, and thus the third 
period ended with Mass. leading by 
19 points. 

In the final quarter Reebernacher 
pulled off the best run of the after- 
noon with a 60-yard jaunt through 
the entire Bobcat team to the Bates 
16-yard line. From there, on the next 
play Anderson crashed over left guard 
for the tally. Benoit held, and Smith 
added to the point. With a 26 point 
lead Coach Eck began resting the 
regulars and putting in the substi- 
tutes. Don Junkins intercepted a 
Bates pass on his own 16-yard line, 
and from thereon the game was 
played out in mid-fleld in a good dis- 
play of the Redmen's reserve 

Maroon & White Ramblings 
Tommy Eck's two platoon system 
worked to good advantage. — Mass. 
received several 15-yard clipping pen- 
alties. — On several occasions Kid 
Reebernacher, just as he was hit 
while, running with the ball and about 
to fall to the ground shovel-passed 
the ball to Anderson. This was a 
pretty play to watch from the stands. 
— After his 60-yard run in the fourth 
quarter, Reebernacher came trotting 
in to the bench as Tom Eck went out 
to give him a congratulating slap on 
the back. Noel's only words were 
"I'm pooped", as a big smile broke 
out on his face. — The Redmen had 
an extra incentive for the game since 
all the fathers were sitting and watch- 
ing from the stands. — The 26-0 
shellacking was the Redmen's third 
consecutive win against the Bates 
College football team, and it also put 
them ahead in their series rivalry. 
U. of Mass. now leads Bates with 9 
victories, 8 losses, and 1 tie. The first

Two years ago the Redmen opened 
their grid season with a 7-G win over 
Bates to join the undefeated ranks 
with Notre Dame (so the Collegian

team lost by the closest of margins, 
one point, to Northeastern.

Gloomy Forecast 

By Kosakowski 

Last Saturday, the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture held a pre-sea- 
son scrimmage with Williston Acad- 
emy at Easthampton. When the smoke 
had cleared away, the Aggies found 
themselves on the short end of a big 
score, as they left much to be de- 
sired in both offense and defense. 

Two serious faults that displayed 
themselves in the game were the lack 
of blocking, and the inability of the 
team to remember their assignments. 
The team had trouble adapting them- 
selves to the single-wing formation, 
as many of them used the T in high 
school and have had only one week 
of practice here. 

Although Coach Steve Kosakowski 
found little to be happy about in the 
scrimmage, there were bright spots. 
The outstanding back of the after- 
noon proved to be Bob Bishop, while 
the work of Capt. Dick Trenholm and 
Bill Collins sparkled on defense. 

Coach Kosakowski gave a rather 
gloomy forecast for the season but 
said that the Aggie team has always 
been noted for its spirit rather than 
experience, and felt that the team 
would give a creditable account of 
themselves throughout the season. 
The Aggies open their season's play 
against Monson Academy next Sat- 
urday at Monson. 

Members of SSA who make up the 
team are: P. McCarran, B. Saunders, 
K. Knight, 8. Priest, A. Pinnard, E.

Looking Things Over 

by Joe Broude 

This University, like many of the 
other colleges in the country, is start- 
ing to feel the effect of the Korean 
war on its athletic program. The 
first to be called into service has 
been starting defensive fullback 
Frank DiGiammarino of Maiden. 
Frank, a sophomore, showed great 
promise on the 'gridiron and played 
a good game last Saturday against 
Bates College. All those who know 
him wish him the best of luck and 
hope that before long he will again 
be back on campus. 

Congratulations to Tommy Eck and 
his team for the success they had in 
the newly innovated split-T formation. 
Much work and time was spent by 
both in learning the T and how to 
employ it successfully. 

The cheering and singing that pre- 
vailed at the Bates contest was due 
mostly to the frosh who turned out 
in full force to see the Redmen win. 
Not only may the season be success- 
ful on the field but the freshmen 
may instill a much needed spirit on 
this campus. The next chance they 
will have to use their vocal chords 
will be Friday, October 13, when the 
Freshmen meet Wesleyan at 8 p.m. 

Although the female sex is hardly 
ever mentioned on the sports page it 
seems that the drill team deserves 
some credit for its work. The halves 
between the football games would be 
completely dull if it were not for 
the marching jrirls. Not only because 
of their sex is it worth while watch- 
ing them, for they could show some of 
the R.O.f.C. students how to do some 
maneuvers. ,

This is the first in a series of ar- 
ticles which will appear weekly in an 
effort to explain the game of soccer 
to those unfamiliar with the sport, 
and to further interest the student 
body in following the activities of the 
varsity and frosh soccer squads. It 
is not the purpose of these articles 
to teach you how to play soccer, but 
to interest you in the sport which 
today is played in more than 100 
colleges throughout the United States, 
and in more than 1500 high and pre- 
paratory schools in Eastern United 

The average dimensions of a soccer 
field for international matches ranges 
from a length of 110 to 120 yards 
by 70 to 80 yards. At either end of 
the field are goals eight feet high 
and eight yards long. The purpose of 
the goal area in front of the goal is 
to indicate the only area in which the 
goal keeper can be charged by op- 
posing players when he is in contact 
with the ball. It also limits the area 
in which the ball can be placed for 
a penalty kick. 

The penalty area around the goal 
is a rectangle 44 yards by 18 yards 
and indicates the area wherein an 
offense resulting in a penalty kick can 
be committed. It limits the part of 
the field where the goal keeper may 
handle the ball, indicates the distance 
the ball must be kicked from the goal 
area when a goal kick is taken, and 
indicates the area outside of which 
all players must stand when a pen- 
alty kick is made, or when a free 
kick is taken by the defending side 
from within its own penalty area. 

The offenses which result in pen- 
alty kicks are charging an opponent 
violently or dangerously, or from be- 
hind, handling the bail, holding, 
striking, tripping, pushing or kicking 
an opponent, or jumping at an op- 

Stretching across the field halfway 
between goals is the half-way line. 
At its middle is the center spot from 
which a ten yards center circle ex- 
tends. The purpose of this circle is 
to prevent interference with the free 
kick. At the kickoff players must 
stand on their own side of the half- 
way line until the kick is made,"

Harriers Beaten 
By Huskies, 22-37 

Goding Finishes Second; 
Allen Winds Up Fifth 

Despite somewhat better perform- 
ances than were expected all the way 
around, and a very fine race on thr 
part of George Goding, the cross 
country team suffered a decisive de- 
feat, 22 to 37, at tfc« hands of North- 
eastern last Saturday. Unexpectedly 
loaded with talented sophomores wfe 
leapt off to an early lead, the Hus- 
kies showed rare form for such an 
early meet. They continued their fast 
early pace over the whole route, se- 
riously challenged only by Godin? 
and Halsey Allen, who finished sec- 
ond and fifth. 

The race was somewhat unusual 
in that it was bunched for over a 
mile. At the two mile mark, however, 
it had assumed its usual character, 
a strung out contest with some dis- 
tance between most of the runners. 
At this point, too, it became obvious 
that the men in maroon must either 
run a much improved second two 
miles or lose out, for only two of 
them split the first six Huskies. God- 
ing was third or fourth with Allen 
not far behind. The rest of the Red- 
men were spread from ninth place 
back. With less than two miles to go, 
Goding had moved into second placr, 
but nearly two hundred yards back 
of Northeastern's Brownson. The 
latter lost most of his lead in the 
next half mile, but managed to over- 
come Goding's desperation bid at the 
finish, to win by less than a second 
in excellent time. It was a splendid 
race on the part of both. Allen also 
ran very well for the Massmen, fin- 
ishing fifth. The necessary improve- 
ment was not forthcoming from the 
rest of the team, however, and al- 
though they eventually moved up to 
the positions shown in the summary 
below, it was not enough. 

Lou Buck, running with only » 
week of practice after a late return 
to school, came along fast to finish 
fourth for us. Only a sophomore, Lou 
likes the longer races and should 
prove a mainstay over the next three 
years. Walt Sargent, also a soph, dis- 
played tremendous improvement in 
moving into the seventh spot on the

Saturday the harriers meet W.P.I- 
between the halves of the football 
game there. Usually weak, the Engin- 
eers showed strength in the distance 
runs last spring and may provide 
tough opposition.

Verily and forsooth, 'twas a good sight to see the rambling

Redmen Bow 
In Soccer Opener 
To Dartmouth 

The Redmen bootew got off to a 

rugged start as they took a <i-l beat- 

ing from a classy Dartmouth aoeeer 
squad at Hanover last Saturday. The 

only Massachusetts goal, booted by 

Fred Seiferth, bounced off the Dart- 
mouth fullback. 

The first half was fairly even stc 
vcii, the only score coming OB a pen- 
alty shot. That put the Green Indians 
ahead l-<». Another successful penalty 
shot in the third stanza made it 2-0. 
Dartmouth added two more tallies 
before the Redmen broke into the 
scoring column.. Then the Big Greer. 
added two more to wind it up. 

Deaplte the fact that Dartmouth 
roUed up six goals, the performance 
„,- Hill Whitmore in the nets was 
commendable. Ho came up with some 
-real saves to stop Big Green drive*. 

The RedmM journey to Schenectady 

this Saturday to meet a strong Union 
CoHege mjtftt With the first game 
ott , of the way, the Redmen, many 
Of whom are green sophomores, can

man ce. The experienced Dartmouth 
team had too much class for the lads 
just up from the frosh ranks. 

The junior varsity soccer squad has 
arranged a number of home games, 
,„„. of which will be with Brande.s 
Univereity, this year embarking >n 
a program of intercollegiate athletics. 
The J-V's will probably play their 
ramea on Alumni Field where the 
,rosh contests will take place. Vars.ty

Plymouth B gained an easy triumph 
as the Commuters failed to put in an 
appearance by game time which was 
7:00 p.m. At 7:45 Butterfield B took 
the field against Chadbourne B and 
in the other game Butterfield C met

Berkshire A will oppose Hamlin A. 

Kight-thirty will be the starting 
time for two fraternity league games. 
Tri Zeta will meet Alpha Gam in one 
affair while Sig F.p and A KIM will 
battle in the other. AEPi copped the 
fraternity crown last fall, and will 
field another fast team in an effort 
to repeat. Sig Ep's contribution to 
the conference is power-laden, and 
the result can easily be one of the top 
fraternity games of the season, even 
at this early date.

As in well-organized groups, we 
.entuallv come to the head. In all

y afternoon. 

AVE FLOOD attended Norwood 
t.d Central High Schools in Nor- 
ond, where he played football, base- 
and track. The boys at Butter- 
eld don't need to be told that Dave 
as president of that house in his 
eshman year, or that he was a 
ember of the Statesmen. He seemed 
know his way around Butterfield 
ite well during hazing, and many 
rs have heard his baritone yell of 
'get up!, get up! it's past five" — 
jid we got up. The poor guy who 
ied to crawl into the first floor 
indow of Lewis on that fateful

He continued his football career while 
acting in the capacity of Treasurer

HERB SAUNDERS, Treasurer of 
the Maroon Key, comes from Rand- 
olph, where he attended Stetson High. 
He played baseball, basketball, was on 
the Student Council, and was treas- 
urer of his class. At the university 
during his freshman year, Herb was 
on the track team and participated 
in the International Relations Club. 
And again we come across a scholar 
in the Maroon Key, for Herb was 
on the Dean's List during his fresh- 
man year. 

From Greenfield High School we 
have ED SAXTON. In high school, 
Ed's friends might have recognized 
him under his make-up in the senior 
play, or seen his name on the staff 
of the yearbook. Ed was on the swim- 
ming team during his formative year, 
and is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa. 
RANDY WALKER is the veep of 
the Maroon Key. As vice president 
he can be classified right along with 
the president as a man to keep your

Last, but by no means least, we 
have BOB WELLS from Waban. He 
attended Newton High School, where 
he was a member of the Prom Com-

track team. The university track 
squad welcomed Bob as a freshman. 
He also was a member of the Exec- 
utive Committee. Theta Chi stands 
behind this member of the Maroon 

Now, we know a little about the 
boys with the famous white hats. I 
hope all of us will be able to become 
more acquainted with this organiza- 
tion as the year goes by. They have 
helped us a lot, and they deserve our 
thanks for the many things they 
have done for us and for the school 
at large. 

Whether they be called maroon 
keys, purple sticks, or just plain guys, 
let's all stand behind them from now 
on in . They sure deserve it. 

Along with war and taxes, the de- 
cline of male superiority seems to 
be inevitable in our changing society. 
Time and again during the last cen- 
tury, women have infiltrated the ter- 
ritory hitherto regarded as strictly 
for men only. The latest example of 
this as witnessed on the U. of M. 
campus is the admittance of a dozen 
co-eds into the University Band. 

During what some members call 
a weak moment, the band voted last 
spring to permit female participation 
in the organization. Despite the out- 
raged roar of a few diehards, 12 girls 
were welcomed into the group this 
fall . Their musical ability and femi- 
nine charms were indisputably proved 
at their initial performance at last 
week's game. 

Dating back to the thirties when 
the band was first formed as an out- 
growth of the old ROTC band, the 
organization has been strictly a male 
affair except for a brief interlude 
during the early war years when th.- 
supply of available man power was 
effete. Finding the man power short- 
age too great an obstacle, the group 
agreed to disband. For four years, 
from 1942 — 194«'», therefore, the cam- 
pus was lacking a band. When reor- 
ganized in 194f>, the band agreed to 
resume its pre-war policy of non- 
admittance to women. The increased 
enrollment of women students pro- 
duced a greater number of coeds who 
desired admission to the organization. 
In recognition of this, the band re- 
versed its former policy and passed 
the momentous motion of last spring. 

Hroad Minded 

Despite this broadminded policy of 
the band members, the organization 
seems to be foredoomed to revert to 
an all male status. Because of the 
present ruling in regard to freshmen 
hours, seven of the coeds will be un- 
able to attend future practice ses- 
sions. It, therefore, appears that un- 
less some provision is made for these 
girls, last week's game will have been 
their first and last appearance with 
the band this season. 

Affected by the ruling on fresh- 
men women's hours are: 

Betsy Woodward, clarinet; Joyce 
Smith, clarinet; Pauline Turner, 
French horn; Joan Lapmsky, alto; 
Ethel Clancy, drums; Julia Parmelle, 
clarinet; Pauly Stephan, drumB. 

Other women in the band are : 

Emily Wheeler '52, clarinet; Betsy 
Campbell '52, glockenspiel; Adele 
Higgins '53, baritone; Betsy Goding 
'52, clarinet; and Agnes McDonough, 
'51, drums.

The Mind A Machine 

In My Opinion 

Dick Andrews 
The crowd had left Barsie's, Lil 
sloshed a foaming pitcher tableward 
and disappeared into the cellar for 
another keg. I started to calculate 
the percentage of alcohol already in 
my blood stream to determine wheth- 
er the next pitcher would put me un- 
der the table. I glanced up from my 
figures and this quaint character 
just happened to appear out of th«- 
haze of tobacco smoke. "How in 'ell 
did you get here?" I a.sked. 

"Five- will. (He gave a little smirk 
like that Mr. Friendly in the insur- 
ance Ads) independent of cause and 
effect, quite outside Newtonian phy- 

"Uh huh, and so what?" I pulled 
a spring balance from my pocket, ex- 
erted a tension of 55.728n grams (ex- 
perimentally determined, mind you) 
on the plunger of the pin-ball mach- 
ine. I let go the plunger. The ball 
made an erratic path amongst the 
contacts — lights flashed and bells 
rang like a Good Humor Wagon. The 
machine began to vibrate giving out 
with the opening stanza of the Star 
Spangled — a perfect score! Dropping 
my salute I triumphantly drained my 
glass. "There!" I said, "that's cer- 
tainty, predictability, Science! Ta 'ell 
with your free-will!" 

"Shades of August Compte! Obvi- 
ously, in the world of matter and en- 
ergy, your method is sound. But, con- 
sidering the human mind — it's wortn 
as much as that!" Whereupon he 
blew six inches of foam from}- the 
glass I had poured for him. 

Not to be outdone, I came back 
with something I'd picked up from 
my sociology and psych courses ex- 
plaining the latest pronouncements 
on behaviorism "straight from the 
horse's mouth". He looked puzzled. 
I pointed to the pinball machine: 
"The mind is a lot of relays — 
thoughts are like the flashing lights 
that show the score. The balls that 
hit the contacts are like stimuli: 
light, sound, heat, and stuff that 
comes through the senses. And so, 
you see, you act according to what 
has happened to you." 

"And the ideas you have," he asked, 
"are they just the result of mole- 
cules and electrons bouncing around?" 
I nodded slowly in answer. His face 
took on a glow of sudden enlighten 
ment. Then he sighed, "Isn't it won- 
derful! All these little moving parti- 
cles come together in the brain in 
such a way that they produce by 
mere chance an explanation of just 
how it all happens — how the mind 
works, that is." 

"Yes", he said after a period of 
deep thought, "it certainly is amaz- 
ing. But how do you know that it all 
adds up to the perfect score? How 
do you know that this is the truo 
explanation? There are so many to 
choose from." 

"Well, er I just have to decide," 
I said.

W.M.I'. A., the campus radio sta, i wci'c well r< Waived dining the Kates 

tion, officially opened its I960 season 
last Monday. 

The radio staff this year is under 
the direction of Wayne Langill, the 
original station organizer, who has 
heen active in the setting-up and di- 
rection of college radio since '40. 
Other executive members of the sta- 
tion are: John Benvenuti, ass't sta- 
tion director; Joe Dombrowski, pro- 
duction director; Dave Baker, tech- 
nical director; Bob Servais, public 
relations director; Gene Ryan, special 
events director; Larry Higgins, chief 
announcer; Frank Spear, chief oper- 
ator; and Don Davies, P.B.S. co-ordi- 


Among the current issues concern- 
ing the station is an arrangement 
with W.S.F.L. Springfield to broad- 
east some of the university football 
and basketball games. Games will be 
broadcast over P.B.S. lines to Spring- 
field where W.S.F.L. will send the 
games out over their "F.M." facilities. 
These sports events will be broadcast 
by our own W.M.U.A. student an- 
nouncer. "Beaver" Beaumont was our 
star football quarterback until re- 
cently when he was sidelined, due to 
sustained injury. However, he will 
continue to serve his school and his 
teammates in another capacity— that 
of announcing the games. "Beaver's" 
thorough knowledge of the game, his 
sincere interest and his colorful adlibs 

game last week 

Special permission has been grant- 
ed to P.B.S., including W.M.U.A., to 
re-broadcast excerpts from the Gen- 
eral Assembly Conferences of the 
United Nations at Lake Success. This 
is in conjunction with the educational 
program put forth by the U.N. in 
respect to enlightening the listening 
public on U.N. world affairs and 
their outcome. 

Tentative plans are being made to 
resume the show "On The Town", 
originating every Wednesday night 
at 7 from Skinner Auditorium. Plans 
for this program include: live talent, 
an orchestra, and the feature, "It's 
Up To You". Each week a campus 
beauty, selected as the mystery date, 
is hidden from the three male con- 
testants, but is visible to the audi- 
ence. Each participant has five min- 
utes in which to convince the girl 
that she should date him. Prizes for 
the convincing talker and his mys- 
tery woman include free passes to 
the Amherst theater, free steak din- 
ners, and free transportation for the 
night. So hustle over there, fellows- - 
remember— "It's Up To You".

Drill Team Sets 
Pace For Another 
Successful Season 

"Ri-i-i-ight flank!" 

This is one of the commands many 
of us can hear floating across the 
campus from Alumni Field every 
night between five and six o'clock. 
They mean that Bob Smith and Bob 
Bertram are putting the members 
.,f the Drill Team through their paces 
so that they will be in tip-top shape 
for the next week's football game. 

The Drill Team was started in 
1946, and is the only organization of 
its kind here in the East. Tryouts 
are usually held in the spring, and 
are open only to women. From the 
many girls who compete, only 48 are 
selected for final positions. 

The snappy formations executed by 
the Drill Team have added color to 
all our football games, and the girls, 
as shown by last Saturday's perform- 
ance, have really worked hard. The 
Drill Team is certainly headed for 
another triumphant year. 

Federal Circle 

Housing Officer F. B. Thomas an- 
nounced that Federal Circle, the re- 
conversion housing project, may be 
torn down next summer even though 
it is now fully occupied. 

Barring a sudden increase in the 
number of married graduate students 
or undergraduate marriages, the •'.(» 
available units in Suffolk and Hamp- 
shire Houses which are dormitory- 
type apartment buildings, are expect- 
ed to accomodate all married students 
next year. Mr. Thomas asserted, how- 
ever, that Federal Circle, now in Stl 
sixth consecutive year, will stand as 

long as it is n ee d ed.

WSSF Conference 
Stresses Aid To 
Foreign Students 

A delegation of five students and 
three faculty members attended the 

New England Regional Conference of 

tlie World Student Service Pttad last 
Saturday si Yale University. The con- 
ference was held to redefine th« ur- 
gent needs of foreign university stu- 
dents and to discuss the methods by 
which American students can meet 

these exigencies through WSSF. 

Although monetary aid is a con- 
sideration in such a relief program, 
Mr. Wilmer J. Kitchen, director of 
WSSF. pointed out that intellectual 
and cultural exchanges are valued 
the most by discouraged students of 
Europe and the Hast. In his closing 
address at the conference, Mr. Kitchen 
stated that the dichotomy of the East 
and West is being brought together 
by a "growing fabric of relationships" 
smong the students of these parts. 

Asserting that there is "no sub- 
stitute for face-to-face contacts," Dr. 
Maxwell H. Goldberg, in the main 
address of the conference, upheld Mr. 
Kitchen's view. Dr. (Joldberg declared 
further that "the sum-total effect of 
international student effort toward 
material relief and cultural cooper- 
ation is very *rre;it, and deserves la- 
creased American support." N 

The speaker dismissed as unfounded 
the widespread notion that American 
efforts on behalf of students and pro- 
>rs in disturbed areas might be 
alsckened this year. Rather he in- 
sisted that, becaUSC of the gmvs in- 
ternational situation and its accom- 
panying tension, support for these ef 
forts must he increased. Dr. (lold- 
berg based his assertions on his first-

A Sand Pile of Apathy 

—LETTERS TO THE EDITOR— Collegian Profile No. 39 

little fish wants to swim Steve Kosakowski, Versatile CoacU 


Dear Editor: 

Life is a complicated and monotonous compound 
to us freshmen girls. I shall explain this parodoxical 
statement by reminding you established and busy up- 
perclassmen of that fact that we poor, precious young 
frosh girls car.not participate in any extra-curricular 
activity until Dean's Saturday. Perhaps early Decem- 
ber doesn't seem a particularly remote time to you 
active upperclassmen, but to an impatient and zeal- 
ous freshman, it seems like "the day that will never 


Elsewhere on the Editorial page, there is a letter to the edi- 
tor mentioning unfairness of the new teaman ™^» l jjj£ 
which restricts the freshmen women to tl en doim tones alter 
7:00 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays (Study Nights) until 
Dean's Saturday on December 2nd. 

The Collegian feels that the restriction is a sensible one and 
despS thefaTthat staying in on four nights a week may seem 
nnw likp a iail sentence to some women, it will be definitely iouna 
ir i the end thai the students (Panhellenic Council Dormitory 
House Councils and Student Senate Committee on Women s Af- 
fa'rsi *whc ?made up the ruling knew the freshmen women's prob- 
lem well. 

Does this mean that the ruling demands or we expect, since 
most activities meet after 7:00 p.m., that freshmen womenw. 
have to stick their heads in a sandpile of extra-curricular apathy 

until December 2nd? 

Certainly not! The freshmen women can and should contact 
anv group that they are interested in and without actually en- 
gaging in a rush of activity, for that group, acquaint themselves 
with the people in charge and with the work of the organization 
You have an excellent chance to prove to the group leaders that 
even though you cannot participate as much as you would like to, 
you are interested enough to learn what you can in the time you 

have available. mm . , , 

It is well to keep in mind when and if you regret not being 
able to attend rehearsals for a dramatic production or attend 
meetings for organizations, that there are 2000 sophomores, ju- 
niors, and seniors eligible for participation in these events and 
that the parts or positions rarely go to freshmen and when they 
do it almost invariably has been disastrous to their grades. 

The Collegian cannot speak officially for the other organiza- 
tions on campus but we do believe they will all back us m this . . 
the doors of all the activities will be held wide open for you after 
December the 2nd! For, although the activities will be well on 
their way" by this date, a wide awake group will quickly welcome 
newcomers to participate, realizing that after the initial onslaught 
of new members has been received and interest has subsided to 
some extent, they will be looking for more talent and more active 


The campus has had many eager beaver freshmen start off 
the year with a full schedule of classes and many extra-curricular 
activities in the past and has also said goodbye to many of those 
eager beavers before their first year was finished. Activities sud- 
denly become minutely unimportant when one is being thrown 
out of college for low grades! 

This Exchanging World 

Intercollegiate Press 

Outlining the faults of college teaching, Dr. Ordway Tead, Chairman of 
the Board of Higher Education of New York City, approached the subject 
recently from the aspects of the personality and philosophy of the teacher, 
the methods of instruction currently used in colleges and the nature of learn- 

' They dispense words and more words, he said. It .sometimes seems as if 
many college classes are conducted on the premise that the printing press 
and the mimeograph machine are nonexistent. 

Brown Daily Herald 

The junior year in college is a time when the student ■ brain wakes up, 
said William Edwards, a prominent Providence lawyer in his chapel address 
vesterdav Edwards, also a member of the class of 1919, believes that the 
junior vear is a stage between fright and boredom. During his first two 
years, a student is frightened by his college surroundings, and in his senior 
'year he is bored to death by his professors and classes. Due to the presence 
of this middle stage, the opportunity If present for an awake and active mind. 

To cite a specific example of lost opportunities, I 
will refer to an item I recently read in the Collegian, 
inviting all those interested in trying out for "Briga- 
doon" to be in Mem Hall next Friday at 7:30. But 
what happens if a frosh girl gets a part? I note re- 
hearsals are in the evenings. Perhaps you "big" boys 
and girls don't realize that we little freshmen women 
have to be in our dorms by 7 on week nights, thus 
completely depriving us of any chance we might have 
had to attend rehearsals in which we might be so in- 
tensely interested and so immeasurably useful. 

Our house mother and proctors have assured us 
that we will have an opportunity to join after the 
aforementioned day, but I don't suppose they have 
taken into consideration the fact that by then the 
production will be well under way, and the new mem- 
bers of the Operetta Guild will be more lost than they 
were their first week on campus. Sure, there will be 
other shows, but not "Brigadoon". And what about 
newspaper and magazine staffs? They will be so well 
organized by then. . . will they want the chain of un- 
trained freshmen around their necks for a second time 
in one semester? 

I don't want you to get the false impression that 
I do not realize the good sense nor sound reasoning 
behind the rules which keep us in our rooms studying 
at night, for I am aware of the importance of good 
grades and a high intake of the information offered 
in our courses. Still, the fact remains that the campus 
organizations will be well under way by December. 
Knowing that all the other girls in the class are caught 
in the same net is small compensation for the little 
fish who is anxious to start swimming in the big pond 
of extra-curricular activities. 

Is there no way that those of us who are interested 
in trying out for "Brigadoon", for staffs of various 
publications, and for membership in any of the numer- 
ous and fascinating clubs, might participate during 
the day hours? Is there no way that we can become 
affiliated with these organizations during the hours 
which are our own, and thus become a part of the rest 
of college life? We know there is more to college than 
classes and dates, interesting and important as these 
may be, and we are anxious to be helpful in the other 
phases of campus living. 

If you can find some ray of hope for the future 
actresses, authors, musicians and club members of 
the co-eds of the class of '54, I am certain that I and 
all my classmates will be immensely grateful to you. 

Sincerely yours, 
Frances Freedman

"The Collegian must be hard up if they 
profile of me" was the retort from the good | 

man in room seven of the Physical Education buil<i;.J 
Stephen Kosakowski sat dressed in a coaching J 
form getting ready to start another afternoon pr a ,- 
with the Stockbridge football team. This was I 

to him since he was now starting his fifth year u 
of all active Stockbridge sports. 

Steve Kosakowski was born in Amherst, M^.. 
in 1915. He entered the University (which w 
Mass. Aggie) in 1935, but in 1938, he transferred; 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. He gradual 
in 1940 with a degree in floriculture. 
Shortly afterwards, i 

Steve went into the 

army and became a 

first sergeant in the | 

anti-aircraft division. 

He was sent overseas! 

to Australia and Newl 

Guinea where he 

served as an assistant 

to the Federal Bureau | 

of Investigation. 

Upon e m e r g i ngl 

from the army, Steve 

was appointed to an[ 

instructorship in Phy- 
sical education fori 

Stockbridge. Since 

that time, Steve has 

undertaken the entire]

I contend, because of "big business", but because • 
have the American competitive spirit. The will 
to go in and keep trying. 

As for a coaches salary, you must r.ot fou 
a coach doesn't play, he merely advises the play-: 
It is a full time occupation which must be done f;> 
game is to be at all coordinated. Something els- 
be remembered is that coaches were always paid 
their services, and even though their salaries may 
higher now in comparison to other days, other 
have since become higher also. 

Mr. Umina believes that some of the be- | 
school athletes go to some of the finer universities v 
cause: (1) as graduates of those universities they 
gain the prestige which goes with them; (2) they j 
play a better brand of football there and have a | 
competition; (3) they will be more likely to ea> 
for themselves in connection with a larger, more w.e| 
ly known university. 

Your point, I think you will agree, was, after .<: I 
ing what I quoted in the beginning of this letter, :ai| 
our boys work hard and would take whatever mom 
as they can get for this work. My letter contend! 
that our boys or any of them for that matter. Nj 
not so much interested in the money as they wtftflj 
game. I don't argue that there is anything wrong 1 1 
athletic scholarships, for the boys have little 
time to work their way through college after footh 
is over. That sort of thing, I agree with you is jft| 
However, I do not agree with your reasons as to 
it is just. Times may have changed, sir, true, but fa 
ball in essence has not: nor has the idea of sportsmuj 
ship which you seem to have overlooked. 

And now, sir, if I haven't convinced you tha: -I 
boys in all colleges play for love of sport, and that owT 
they are with a University they will play as hard i 
they can for the glory of their team, and not moKil 
just prove it to yourself. Ask the boys from No*| 
Dame if, in the last few minutes of the Purdue 
last week, they were worrying about scholarship- I 
might loose, or, better still, ask one of our b-: ■ I 
they worried about college finances after last w*»j 
heartbreaker with Worcester Polytechnic. 

Anthony Umina 
P.S. — I suggest that you ask them over the telepr I 


Last week there appeared in this newspaper an 
editors note in answer to a letter to the editor, which 
was in answer to an article in the proceeding week's 
Collegian entitled "Looking Things Over." 

May I remind the editor that this University of 
ours is not one of the larger universities to which he 
refers in his note, and of which he made no mention in 
the article in question. May I also remind this same 
editor that in his article "Looking Things Over" he 
made no distinction whatsoever between the football 
played in these larger universities and that displayed 
at this University, although he hinted in his note that 
he did. Let me refresh your memory, Mr. Editor, I 
quote from your article, "Not too many years have 
passed since the time when a college football game 
was the campus highlight of the week, because of the 
old do-or-die spirit displayed by the team members and 
the students. The only reward the grid players wanted 
was the chance to be seen demonstrating their skills 
which they arduously practiced day in and day out. 
They were motivated by the will to win for 1 their school 
and for the students who without fail each Saturday 
afternoon rocked the stands with cheers and songs. 

Times have changed, and with the passing of time 
football has become a business. A big business — ." 

See Sir, if, "as the tears roll down (your) eyes", 
something which I can not conceive of, that you re- 
member that! 

When I read these lines I understood them to mean 

that football is no longer a game which owes its prom- >.__.... „„ or n ,

inence to school spirit, but rather to big business; that * * 

no longer are college campuses highlighted by weekly 

football games in the fall, that no longer do football 

players, not just in larger universities such as Harvard 

or Michigan or Columbia, which you mentioned in your 

editor's note, but all of them, have the do or die spirit 

which you referred to in the past tense. I may be in 

error: one of us certainly is. 

In answer to your question sir, Mr. Umina be- 
lieves that colleges change coaches because some 
coaches get old and obsolete, and can no longer produce 
a winning team. The desire to have a winning team, 
he believes, is not a desire prompted by big business, 
but a goal towards which a fighting team strives. 

If universities call on players or coaches who 

Editor's Note:— It is quite evident, Mr. Umina I 
you do not quite understand my idea of college 8 I 
ball. The players on the field, I will agree, are K| I 
to win and are filled with spirit but they are out | 
many of them, because they are getting some renu^" 
ation for it. This is especially true at sonir 
country's larger colleges and universities. 
Do you believe, Mr. Umina, that Lloyd Jord I

For the same reason many athletes g' 1 *

hard to conceive Mr. Umina that they would be ?

they are playing their hearts out for college trad.t 
Apparently you don't know what to think. 

And if you cannot conceive tears rolling as* 
eyes you have a poor imagination.

ing the course of the year, each con- 
test corresponding to a different issue 
of the Quarterly. 

Prize money total* |18 for each 
contest; the actual size of each award

Has Anyone Seen Sidney On Campus? 
Campus Spirit Is Cutting Classes 

by Eatelle Lieberman 

Sidney has disappeared. Although 
we have made many inquiries and 
investigations there seems to be no 
doubt of the fact that Sidney has 
fled the campus. The freshmen who 
are reading this article (we hope) 
may ask, "Who is Sidney?" Alas! 
They have arrived too late to have 
the honor Of knowing this gay and 

our hero was no longer with us. 

Since then we have employed tin- 
best investigators but we can find 
no trace of Sidney. The rumors are 
spreading. The most malicious one 
states that Sidney has been seen 
roaming the campus of Amherst Col- 
lege. Before Mettawampe turns over

her in the contest. This girl, who may 
be studying behind the stacks at 
Goodell this very minute, is a poten- 
tial movie or television star; are we 
going to leave her undiscovered he- 
hind the stacks? 

The entrants of this nation-wide 

contest, "Miss IM1 Require Calendar

plus — many other once-in-a-lifetime 
publicity stories. 

Certainly we have our share of 
feminine beauties on our campus. 
Why, it seems that we elect a queer

Day. We are asked to submit a can-

average of once a month — so why not 
one more? The best way for us to 
hold such a contest- fair and square 
— is to leave it up to you the stu-

Looking Things Over 

by Joe Broude 

U of MASS.-22. W.PJ.-39 

Just about duplicating last week's 
score, but with the difference that 
they took the winning one for them- 
selves, the cross country team evened 
their record to one and one by drub- 
bing W.P.I. 22 to 39. Honors for the 
day, however, went to Dick Zeleny of 
the Engineers, who finished just a 
minute ahead of everybody else to 
set a new course record. 

Zeleny, a thorn in the side of the 
Redmen at every encounter, pulled 
away from the pack at the start and 
was never headed. George Goding and 
Halsey Allen stepped along in good 
time to finish second and third with 
little trouble, but were no match for 

Considerable improvement was not- 
ed in the Redmen's performance as 
the first seven men finished within 
a spread of a minute and ten sec- 
onds. Last week the spread was a 
minute more than that. The biggest 
improvement was shown by Walt 
Sargent, who moved up three places 
from seventh to fourth on the team. 
He should go places. Also starting to 
show the effects of practice is Hal 
Allen, one of the smoothest runners 
to come from this school. To put him 
on the spot, he is almost certain to 
hold the two mile record by next 
■priaff. Without belittling George 
Goding, whose own improvement 
from last year to this has been little 
short of amazing, it cannot be over- 
looked that Hal is catching up and 
must soon be right with him. 

This is a break for the team, since 
despite the bleak prospect at the 
start of practice of having nobody 
ap far enough to gainer those low 
scoring positions, it now appears that 
there are two of them, just as there 
were last season. From the third spot 
back the team is about as strong as 
last fall. This means that this year's 
record will depend largely on how 
the opposition stacks up as compared 
to last year. Northeastern was much 
stronger and they trounced us. Tech 
amc up a bit. and the score reflected 
it. Friday, Williams tries out the 
local roads. It will be close.

ing, I'M; 3-Allen, UM; 4-Phinney,

Briggsmen Bow; 
Jeffs Will Be Here 
Next Wednesday 

The U of M booters outscored 
Union College in the last three- 
fourths of their soccer game at Sche- 
nectady last Saturday, but it was 
the first period which decided the 
fray as the Dutchmen scored three 
goals and then held on to rack up a 
3-1 triumph. 

Captain Chet Libucha tallied the 
only Redman marker when he scored 
in the third period. Osborg led the 
Union attack with two goals while 
the other marker was scored by Vo- 

Nothing went right for the Briggs- 
men as the contest opened, and with- 
in the space of ten minutes Union 
had a three goal lead which proved 

Yesterday the Maroon and White 
played Williams at Williamstown. 
This Saturday the Briggsmen will 
make their first home appearance 
when they meet Worcester Tech. 
Next Wednesday the traditional game 
with Amherst College should provide 
plenty of thrills, and it will be played 
on the new soccer field behind the 
Phys. Ed. Building. For the past 
three seasons Amherst has fielded 
one of the top teams of New England. 
Last year's club was the best. Yet 
during these three years the Jeffs 
have been unable to conquer the for- 
ces of Larry "They won't beat us by 
any 9-1 score" Briggs. The reference 
was to last Saturday's Amherst game 
with Clark which our cross-town riv- 
als won 9-1. The only blot on the 
Jeff slate last year was a 1-1 tie 
with our Redmen. It's another great 
team for the Jeffs, but though un- 
derdog, the Maroon and White will 
be ready with tomahawks unsheathed 
come Wednesday afternoon. This will 
be the top soccer game T>f the year 
for the Maroon and White forces.

The only favorable thing that 
could be seen from the 21-20 loss 
to W.P.I, last Saturday was the fact 
that the Redmen are a much better 
team than that which took the field 
a year ago. This holds for both the 
defensive and offensive squads. 

W.P.L's line may have been slight- 
ly better but both teams provided 
their quarterbacks ample defense and 
neither was willing to give an inch. 

It was "Donker" Gleason and Noel 
Reebenacher who accounted for the 
hree U.M. touchdowns all of which 
were scored on running plays. Smith 
added a point after each of the last 
two touchdowns but unfortunately 
had missed the one in the first quar- 

The name Noel Reebenacher should 
be remembered for the sophomon- 
quarterback is the driving force be- 
hind the team. He plays a wide open 
game and it should be noted that all 
three touchdowns were made while lv 
was calling the plays. The fans have 
already taken a liking to him and 
were yelling for him during the last 
period when the Engineers applied 
the winning pressure. 

Saturday afternoon it will be the 
Redmen against Williams at Wil- 
liamstown and they will be trying to 
start a new winning streak. Thus far 
Williams has played two games, win- 
ning last week and losing their open- 
er 00-0 to Princeton. 

Next Wednesday afternoon the 
University and Amherst College will 
continue their rivalry on the Alumni 
soccer field. Although the wealthy 
towners were champs of their league 
last year the Briggsmen beat them 
and will again be trying to duplicate 
the feat. 

Although it is still early to sta:t 
talking about basketball the athletic 
department has started construction 
on the permanent basketball floor to 
be erected in the cage. This is : n 
addition to the portable one wnich 
will be built for just the season.

in a practice meet held here last 
Thursday. Ambling in, arm in arm, 
for first place were Harry Aldrich,

ini finished next, followed by Bob 
Steere and Bob Russell. Don Pearse 
made it seven across for the Maroon 
and White, following four Amherst 


The frosh course, which is a good 
deal longer than the average, was 
laid out to take advantage of the con- 
siderable experience of this year's 
candidates. It is, in fact, almost as 
long as the varsity course at Worces- 
ter Tech. The stamina acquired from 
running the longer distance should 
prove to be a decided advantage in 
running somewhat shorter courses

goal is scored the game is restarted 
with another kickoff. 

The ball is in play just so long as 
it remains within the rectangle of the 
playing area. Play does stop if an 
infraction of the rules occurs, how- 
ever. As concerns scoring, the whole 
of the ball must pass over the goal

One week of Intramural competi- 
tion has been completed aa this goes 
to press and the number of teams 
with two victories under their belts 
is very short. Five games have been 
called no winner because neither ag-

been a number of forfeits with only 
one team appearing for the contest. 

Berkshire B, Butterfield C, Middle- 
sex A, and Chadbourne I) were the 
only squads with two triumphs. Here 
is a roundup of games that have been 
played out. 

On Monday Oct. 2 Berkshire B 
opened with a 31-0 triumph and 
Butterfield C squeezed by 13-12. On 
Tuesday SAK won 20-7 over Alpha 
Gam with passes accounting for all 
three SAE scores. Don Quimby and 
Walt Kenney 'were each in on two 
of tht- scoring plays. PSK gained a 
•JC-18 win, Mills A romped 18-7 and 
Hamlin B had a 86-0 triumph reeked 

Wednesday the 4th Thetu Chi 
romped 86-0, Lambda CM won 27-0 
and TK1' .merged victor 20-6. Thurs- 
day saw Alpha Gam win 0-0, Butter- 
field C 38-7 Hamlin C 7-0 and Ham- 
lin A 14-0. Sig Ep also romped, win- 
ning 88-6 over defending champion 

Last Friday Berkshire B kept roll- 
ing along as they shut out Hamlin B 
13-0 with two second half scores. Mill 
lesex A gained a 20-0 triumph for its 

second win.

One thing the W.P.I, football game 
proved, if nothing else, was that the 
Eckmen are one ball club with Noel 
Keebenacher in the lineup, and a 
completely different club when he ia 
forced out of action. A spark like 
Keebenacher is a good thing to have 
around. It can be the thing to take 
an average team and make it click. 

Before the current grid season got 
under way, one of our coaches (not 
football) stated that what was need- 
ed for a winning club was such a 
■park aa Reebenacher has provided 
for the gridsters. With Heeb, the Eck- 
man will be pretty tough without 
him--well, there hasn't been a winning 
football team hereabouts since 1940. 

Friday night's frosh grid affair 
should draw a good crowd of hardy 
souls ready to brave whatever cold 
weather may come our way. The only 
thing that should keep everyone from 
watching the Little Indians battle 
the Wesleyan frosh will he the date 
Friday, the thirteenth. 

If injuries should cause Tommy 
Eek to start looking for some de- 
fensive linemen he might glance to- 
ward Walter, Kid Gore's pet. No- 
body will try to go through Walter- 
he's a porcupine.

ing of wine. With that peculiar sense 
of justice, they stand in favor of war 
and capital punishment. Now they 
speak of preventive war. 

The idea of such a war even in 
a democratic society that participates 
in war should smell foul. It means, 
in effect, nothing short of aggression. 
It means that we should, instead of 
actively working for peace, seek the 
way most characteristic of the totali- 
tarians. Meanwhile, the liberties that 
are American would be plowed under 
in the interests of unity, preservation 
of democracy, and other such patriot- 

This is another symptom of the ills 
of the time. It points to a lack of 
perspective. It points to a fundamen- 
tal lack of philosophy in our society 
of human beings. The pattern of Km- 
ly Post Regulations that lead one to 
heaven are ironhard, ironic. A stack 
of rules and regulations has replaced 
the attitude of hie that should reign 
in the hearts of men. One must needs 
carry a book about him, replacing 
the heart that is good with the toe- 
marks of institutionalized, rank com- 
promise and hate, the wine of the 
Last Supper is evil, we are told, yet 
WC may drink the blood of the foe. 

Sixty-Two Grants 
Given to Research; 
UM Is Included 

Sixty-two grants in aid of scien- 
tific research have been allocated by 
Research Corporation to colleges, uni- 
versities, and scientific institutions in 
27 states and the District of Colum- 
bia. According to Dr. Joseph W. Bar- 
ker, president of the foundation, these 
awards bring to a total of more than 
$700,000 the funds granted in the 
course of the current fiscal year. 

Richard S. Stein of the U. of M. 
was awarded a grant for a study of 
some applications of the light scatter- 
ing technique to aggregating systems. 

Most of the awards cover investi- 
gations in the fields of physics, chem- 
istry, mathematics, and engineering. 
General grants support pioneering 
work in these fields. Frederick Gard- 
ner Cottrell Grants support research 
projects in smaller colleges as part 
of a long-range program to broaden 
the base of research in American edu- 
cational institutions. 

Placement Lecture 
For Seniors In 0C 

A senior placement lecture for both 
men and women will be held Wednes- 
day, October 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Old

The short lecture, to be conducted 
by Dr. Elliot Allen of the English de- 
partment, and Mr. Guy Glatfelter of 
the Placement Office for Men, will 
be followed by a discussion period. 
Mimeographed forms will be passed

hand experience in Europe this sum- 

Citing examples of the corroding 
fears and tragic desperation of the 
D.P. students in Central Europe, Dr. 
Goldberg went on to emphasize the 
importance of providing, in our Amer- 
ican universities, many more oppor- 
tunities for re-settlement of these 
"worthy young men and women." 

In conclusion Dr. Goldberg paid tri- 
bute to the "unceasing and self-sacri-

staff workers of the World Student

Also attending the conference were

Hamlin Signals Confuse 
Telescopes Help Clarify 


by Sandy Offstrock 
"Get out the telescope, Mother, I'm 
heading back to school!" The question 
of the week seems to be . . . Which 
dorm has the most telescopes — Ham- 
lin or Knowlton? — naturally they po- 
sess them for purely academic rea- 
sons; a new crop of astronomy majors 
has blossomed out this year. I would- 
n't say the girls in Knowlton take 
time from their studies to peer at the 
boys in Hamlin, but I've heard more 
complaints of near-sightedness during 
the past few weeks than I've heard 
in many a year. 

Having the two dorms so close to- 
gether makes things real clubby. Just 
the other night, I heard some of the 
fellows calling over to ask how the 
girls were, they are so solictous about 
our welfare! 

There is nothing, absolutely noth- 
ing, like this co-educational system. 
If a girl should insult a fellow, he 
doesn't demand pistols at dawn — it's 

flashlights at 20 paces, preferably at 
midnight. It's funny how many people 
you get to meet that way. When you 
look out of your window at night— 
to see how the weather is — and you 
just happen to gl? v~e over to Ham- 
lin, you can see flashlights sending 
signals. As yet, we haven't been able 
to fig-are out whether they are S.O.S.- 
ing or just trying to strike up a con- 
versation in Morse code. Metawam- 
pee, with his smoke signals, had 
nothing on the Hamlin boys!!! Since 
flashlights aren't too effective during 
the day, the boys just climb on to 
their roof with signal flags — revival 
of their boy scout days — and let them 

It must be very convenient for the 
fellows in Hamlin when they want 
dates with Knowlton girls. Not onlv 
is it convenient but it's also down- 
right cheap. They don't even have to 
spend a nickel calling a girl on the

Vermont Next 

The Stockbridge School of Agricul 
tine football team opened their sea 
son on a rather sour note last Friday 
when they dropped a 2.">-6 decision to 
a favored Monson Academy team. 
Monson jumped off to a quick 13-0 
lead in the first half as the Aggies 
were missing some key tackles. 

Early in the third period, the Ag- 
gies came to life and pushed across 
a quick T.D. thanks to the great run- 
ning of John Marshall and Bob Bish- 
op. The Aggies threatened again in 
the third period, but two fifteen yard 
penalties ended the threat. Trailing 
13-6 going into the last period, the 
Aggies tried to fight back but an 
80 yard punt return, and a pass inter- 
ception set up two more Monson 
scores, and that was the ball game. 

Some of the brighter spots in an 
otherwise dull afternoon was the kicK- 
ing of freshman Bill Grey, the work 
of Jim Stewart and Fred Kelly on 
defense, and a great exhibition by 
Paul Metcalf and Tom Eddy in the 

Next Saturday, the team will travel 
to Vermont Academy to take part in 
the dedication of Vermont's new ath- 
letic field. In addition, Father's day- 
is scheduled for the same day so 
it promises to be a very rough game. 
Coach Steve Kosakowski issued the 
following statement. "I'd really like 
to dampen their festivities a little at 
Vermont by scoring a win for Stock- 
bridge. During the course of the se- 
ries with Vermont, neither team has 
ever won by more than one touch- 
down. Thus each team would be sat- 
isfied to win this one by one point. 
It should be a rough ball game, but 
the boys will be out there playing 
their best." 

Enjoy your cigarette! Enjoy truly -fine tobaoo 
that combines l>otn perfect mildness and rich 
taste in one great cigarette - Ludcy Strike ; 

Perfect mildness? You bet. Scientific tests, 
confirmed by three independent consulting 
laboratories, prove that Lucky Strike is milder 
than any other principal brand. Rich taste? 
Yes, the full, rich taste of truly fine tobacco. 

Only fine tobacco gives you both real mildness 
and rich taste. And Lucky Strike means fine 
tobacco. So enjoy the happy blending that com-

taste. Be Happy — Go Lucky!

Q. T. V. 

This week Q.T.V. Fraternity lost 
one of its most popular members to 
the Marine Corps. "Russ" Greene of 
the class of 1953 and a member of the 
Marine Corps Reserves was called 
back to active duty. We of Q.T.V. 
wish "Russ" and all University stu- 
dents called, "bon voyage" and a 
quick return. 

Dick Boynton, athletic director, has 
called several practices for the fra- 
ternity football team which fared 
poorly in its first game. A lack of 
practice and co-ordination, plus a 
leaky defense hampered the team in 
its encounter with a well drilled, en- 
thusiastic TEP six. 

Temporary officers elected last 
Monday were: Vincent Keavy, vice- 
president: John Creedon, master of 
ceremonies; and Richard MacCallum, 
sergeant-at-arms. Election of perman- 
ent officers will take place at the 
end of the semester.

Instrumental in the victory was 
the offensive play of Arnie Cohen 
and Phil Kaplan. Defensively, TEP's 
second platoon of Less, Kornetsky,

ents to very small gains. Credit for 
the marked improvement over last

Last weekend the W.M.U.A. radio 
station was given a thorough clean- 
ing in preparation for new technical 
installations work which will begin 
this Thursday. Old equipment will be 
overhauled and rebuilt, and, in addi- 
tion to new installations in the radio 
station itself, the Alumnae Field 

Press Box will be soundproofed by 
the studio engineering staff. 

Jack Benvenuti, assistant radio di- 
rector, announced that there were va- 
cancies in the technical and the an- 
nouncing staffs. Anyone interested 
in these lines may fill out an applica- 
tion blank at the W.M.U.A. office lo- 
cated in Draper Hall. The office hours 
are 1:00 to .">:00 on weekdays. 

Courses in announcing and radio 
dramatics are offered by Mr. Stel- 
kovis of the speech department. The 
announcing classes are given on Tues- 
day at 10:00 and 3:00 o'clock at te- 
station, and classes in radio dramat- 
ics are given on Tuesday at 12:00 and 
1:00 o'clock. These include fundanien 
tal work in enunciation, pronuncia- 
tion, voice culture and announcing 
techniques. Students desiring an- 
nounce rships must complete this 
course; however, persons not plan- 
ning to announce but are desirous of 
taking the course may also enroll. 
Please do not call the studio. Appli-

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

An added scholastic incentive has 
been introduced to SAE. The frat 
brother who shows the most improve- 
ment in marks at the end of each 
semester will receive a medal and a 
certificate of recognition and will have 
his name engraved on a scholarship 
plaque in SAE library. Similar 
awards will be given to the highest 
student each semester. 

Pledges John Benvenuti, David Cur- 
ran and Hutohins Williams were for- 
mally initiated October 20. 

SAE's intramural football squad 
opened its season by defeating Alpha 
Gamma Rho, 20-7. 

Don Stowe, our Eminent Archon, 
attended Leadership School at SAE's 
Levene Memorial in Evanston, 111. 
This is an honor given each year 
to members most active in social and 
leadership activities. 

The current crisis has deprived us 
of one of our new brothers, Ed Craig, 
who is in the 101st Airborne at Fort 
Knox, Kentucky, where he is now 
training for overseas duty. 

Social festivities will be resumed 
this Saturday with the annual "sweat- 
er dance." 

Theta Chi 

Last spring, the Theta Chi alumni 
association of Springfield informed 
Theta Chapter here on campus that 
they would like to support a foreign 
student at the U.M. He was to eat 
at Theta Chi and live in a dorm. The 
members enthusiastically agreed, so 
the plan was put into effect. 

The student is Gaston Kohn, a grad- 
uate student in food technology from 
the University of Chile at Santiago. 
Gaston was at the U. of M. last year 
on a scholarship from the Institute 
of International Education and needs 
this year to complete work for his 
master's degree. 

Gaston did his undergraduate work 
in agronomy. He then spent two years 
working in a food dehydrating plant 
in his home country which greatly 
stimulated his interest in food tech- 

It is Gaston's hope that he can con- 
tribute to his field in the industrial 
development of Chile. 

Writer's Group 

Tonight at 7:30 the Writers' Group 
will leave from the Old Chapel stairs 
for the home of Robert Francis, resi- 
dent Amherst poet, where the first

Those who plan to bring manu- 
scripts should, in the case of poetry, 
bring four copies.

With elections over, the new stu- 
dent government will be rolling into 
gear as the first Senate elected for 
one year. The problems it faces are 
many and under the tenseness of a 
national disturbance much like that 
of '41 and '42 on campus, are mag- 
nified. The senate's ability to carry 
these problems to a satisfactory fi- 
nish remains to be seen. Of the old 
brigade, only a few are left, but of 
these many were the leaders of last 
year's Senate. 

Perhaps the greatest asset of the 
group is the return of incumbent 
president Bill Less. His experience 
in the executive position should serve 
as a powerful balance in stabilizing 
the new Student Government, he is 
probably the strongest force there 

Still the loss of such senators as 
Thelma Litsky, Phil Gilmore, Ed 
Camara, Dave Tarr, Chuch Naroyan 
and Sol Feinberg just to mention a 
few will take a great deal of activity 
to overcome. 

The first active part the new Sen- 
ate will be playing on campus will be 
in the Legislature's Day on November 
4. Plans for this event as outlined by 
co-chairman Dean Robert Hopkins 
and Hal Markarian include sending 
both formal and personal constituent 
letters to the legislators, with a for- 
mulated program so very aptly 
planned just a few days from elec- 

With all the alumni on campus 
these representatives will probably 
leap at the chance. From the way 
things are looking, this will be a 
greatly successful program, the first 
one it is true. Its benefits to the cam- 
pus can best be explained by part

Redmen Lose By Touchdown Selective Service To Require High 

B??™ Averages For Draft Exemption 

To Power - Laden 

In one of the highest scoring games in recent 
:on Field, the Ephmen of Williams, pre-game 14 point favorites, | 
downed the fighting Redmen of Massachusetts by a score of 42-34. 

Both teams took to the air with success, touchdowns coming 
thick and fast. Neither side could score consistently on the ground, I 
but their overhead attacks clicked for a total of eight touchdowns ! 
via the air route. 


There will be a short meeting of 

all members of the Art Staff of the 
Collegian. Thursday evening;, Oc- 
tober 19th at 7:00 p.m. 

The Redmen, in a see-saw, knock- 
m-down, drag-em-out battle, played 
an inspired brand of ball as they 
attempted to upset the favorite. 

At the end of the first quarter it 
looked as if the game would turn into

ly dominated the first fifteen minutes

downs. The first resulted from a

Talks To Start 
Frosh Orientation 

On Momlay night, October 15, the 
first in a series of freshman orienta- 
tion programs was held at Rutterfield 
Dona before an enthusiastic fresh- 
man crowd. Bruce Wogan acted as 
Master of Ceremonies for the pro- 
gram and introduced the main speak- 

Wayne l.angill, station director of 
WMUA, explained the organization 
of the radio station to the group in- 
cluding such technical matters as 
production, public relations, and ad- 
ministration. He concluded by invit- 
ing all freshmen interested to join 
the staff of the station. 

Mr. Warren McGuirk, Director .->f 
Athletics, asked for the cooperation 
and support of all students in the 
University. He explained that the 
teams would have better success if 
the school had a little more spirit. 

Don Allen, head of the University 
Club, talked about the spirit that the 
students had when he attended MaRR. 
State College just prior to the war. 
He described the methods of orienta- 
tion used by the Maroon Key then, 
and told how the Varsity M club be- 
gan. He went on to describe the pur- 
pose of the University Club and their 
ways of getting money. He concluded 
by saying that the university had 
come a long way in athletics and he 
foresaw bigger and better things in 
the near future. 

When the talks were concluded, 
Head Coach Tommy Eck showed mov- 
ies of the W.P.I.— Massachusetts 
football game and a movie of Foot- 
ball Highlights of 1949. 

The meeting proved to be a great 
success, and more are planned in the 
near future.

for the top 75% of the junior class 
to be deferred for their senior year. 
Seniors in the upper half of their 
class will be deferred if they plan 
to go on to graduate school, and will 
retain a draft-exempt status so long 
as they are in good standing. 

These percentages, though not defi- 
nite as yet, approximate the final 

In addition, all students will be 
required to obtain a specific 08010 
on a genera] aptitude exam in order- 
to be eligible for deferment. The score 
which has been suggested is 120 on 
the Army General Classification Test. 

Those students who are participat- 
ing in the KOTC program will, of 
course, be deferred, so long as they 
remain enrolled, but stiffer require- 
ments are being set up for the ad- 
vanced courses. 

Veterans still retain their druft- 
exempt status, although General Her- 
shey notes that "those within druft 
age couldn't have seen much service." 
The increasing need for more men in 
the armed forces may necessitate the 
drafting of these men, but at present 
no action has been planned. The plan

Student-Senate Cooperation 

The installation of the new Student Senate last Tuesday night 
marks another step in the execution of the plans made by those 
who wrote our student constitution over three years ago The 
moblems that the new Senate will face are many and the Sen- 
se's ability to carry these problems to a successful conclusion re- 

main The S b ena S t e e en has the potential organization to knit the campus 
closer togethe and bring about real cooperation between the stu- 
dents and he faculty. The student Government cannot, however, 
do its part atone. The student body must take a real interest in 

the X k tw S lenarUke any newly-constituted organization, 
will face manv problems of direction and co-ordinated work m 
The beginning The student body must give the Senate a chance 
to show what that body can do, and actively help the student 
Government in anv vvav possible to fulfill its responsibilities. 
? The first acthe role that the new Senate will play on campus, 
will be for Legislator's Day on November 4. The committees are 
alreadv hard it work. However, the student body still has a sup- 
noittng rote to play. It is the duty of all students to cooperate 
with t^e Senate i in acting as hosts for the occasion since this 
mav be one of the few opportunities when we, as {tudent^wUl 
have a chance to show our campus to our representatives— both 
what we have and what we lack. Let us not pass up a golden 
nance such as this. Let US back the Senate wholeheartedly in 
this and all other projects that they may attempt during the 
course of the school year. 

Enlarging Scope 

In the second issue of the Collegian this semester, an editor- 
ial promised that this newspaper would encourage any organiza- 
Uon's at tempt to better the university by publicizing that group s 
efforts and policies to the fullest extent. The Collegian believes 
that the Quarterly, the literary publication of the campus, has 
outlined a policv deserving such encouragement from not on y 
the Collegian but from every member of the student body as well. 
The Quarterly's program for this year includes the sponsor- 
ing of famous speakers in the field of fine arts which will enable 
the entire student body to acquaint themselves with the finest 
representatives this field of culture has to offer. The Quarterly 
s also assisting the Writer's Group until that organization be- 
comes established and have already arranged for the first meet- 
ing of the group which was held, by the way, in the home of the 
well-known writer, Robert Francis. 

The fall issue of the Quarterly will feature a new, more ar- 
tistic makeup including pictorial representation of "***£• 
tides as possible and a more eye-appealing cover The Quaiteily * 
enlarging scope in selection of material will create a better oppor- 
tunity for non-fiction writers to have their articles accepted and 
will offer stronger encouragement for letters to the editor. 

In a fine gesture toward the faculty, the Quarterly has in- 
vited them to contribute material and has offered to the under- 
graduate students the opportunity to publish original composi- 
tions and to contest for cash awards similtaneously. The lattei 
is indeed a major step when one realizes that the Quarterly does 
not solicit advertisements and relies only upon funds from the 

^"^"hVsteffof'the Quarterly should be certainly highly com- 
mended for their efforts to not only make their publication a finer 
one for the students but in offering to the Commonwealth a mag- 
azine which will help to feature the University in a high literary 



Last week in the column "Looking Things Over" 
there appeared this sentence— "VV Pi's line may have 
been slightly better but both teams provided their 
quarterbacks ample defense and neither was willing 
to give an inch." I wonder if the author of that sen- 
tence was at the game. In case he wasn't, I would 
like to inform him that the U. of M. gained 252 yds. 
rushing and WTI gained BO yards by rushing. Now 
tell me, Mr. Sportswriter, which one of WPI's lines 
was slightly better than the U. of M.'s— was it their 
defensive line or their offensive line? I could be mis- 
taken, but I'd say the U. of M. line is much better 
than WPI'i instead of "slightly" worse. Incidentally, 
I kept the statistics of that game so the above figures 
;mv not something I picked up via the grapevine. 

By the way, Mr. Hroude, were you at the game or 
is it that you don't know anything about football? 

This same question might well apply to many other 
members of the school for such statements as, "They 
laid down," and "They gave up." I heard others, but 
those are typical of the ones I heard first hand. And 
may I ask if it was the same crowd sitting behind 
the' U. of M. bench when the score was 20-7 in our 
favor as was then- when the score was 21-20 in our 
opponent's favor? 

You should have heard the crowd that attended the 
Bates game— they went wild at that game. Maybe the 
fans have a two-platoon system also — one platoon for 
the games we win and the other for the games we 

In this paper last year there were several articles 
written about the lack of spirit on this campus. Also 
the Senate was reported to have been studying this 
problem. As I remember, everyone was trying to decide 
how we could inject spirit into this campus. Well, I 
would like to tell you that I personally feel the school 
missed a golden opportunity last Saturday at Worces- 
ter and Monday on campus. 

Earlier I stated that I heard a remark to the effect 
that the team gave up— but, it was the student body. 
The night before the Bates game a rally was held 
in Bowker, and the student demonstration was really 
wonderful. But why leave your enthusiasm in the 
auditorium ? Bring it out on the field and let loose, win 
or lose. The football squad practices Monday through 
Friday; on Saturday, they go out and give their best 
and just a little bit more. The other students should 
consider these pre-game rallies as their practice; on 
Saturdays, they should go out and give their best and 
just a little bit more. 

Forget what the score is— you still have YOUR team 
on the field giving their best, but are you up in the 
stand giving your best, regardless of the situation? 
Remember, you didn't at the Worcester game, but the 
team did. 

This idea of backing teams should go for every sport 
played on this campus. Last year this paper was guilty 
of one of the most shameful columns I have ever read: 
some joker, and that is just what he is, panned the 
swimming team after they lost a meet to LaSalle, the 
Notre Dame of swimming. Criticize the teams for lack 
of determination or for mistakes, but never for trying. 
So come on, get behind your teams. They are your 
friends playing, not hired tramp athletes.

It was a pleasure to interview cooperative, 
genial Dr. William Vinal for this week's profile. Th- 
white-haired professor of biological field studies be- 
gan his story by saying that he was bom in Norwei;. 

Dr. Vinal attended Bridgewater Teachers' College 
where he played football, worked as a librarian, a>w 
found his wife. From there he went on to Harvard *

recipient of the George H. Emerson scholarship a! 
..worked as a botany laboratory instructor. At Btt) 
University he received his Ph.D. and was elect. 
Sigma Xi, national scientific honor society. H. ha. 
had many articles published in various magazines, the 
first being printed in a teachers' magazine while h- 
was at Bridgewater. Also among his publications arc 
two books, Nature Cuiding and Mature Recreati,,,,. 

A new department was initiated at Massach uetti 
State College with the arrival of Dr. Vinal in 1987, 
This department is called Biological Field Studiei 
offers the Recreational Leadership Training Prograir.. 
Previous to his position at this school, he was on 
the itinerant faculty of the National Recreational A-

Parks, Yosemite, Glacier, and Crater Lake. 

"Cap'n Bill", as he is called, is probably one 4 
those professors most interested in the progress 
welfare of his students. Not only does he have long 
chats with them and do his best to see that they fin: 
good jobs, but also he keeps a scrapbook of the pr^ 
gress of each student after graduation. He saves i; 
these scrapbooks newspaper clippings, photograph;, 
snapshots, and the like. He received his unusual nick 
name from a group of girls for whom he had a nauti- 
cal camp on Cape Cod. "They had to call me some- 
thing," he says. 

A family-loving man, he has two children, a so: 
and a daughter, and four grandchildren. A big sm.t 
comes across his face and he takes on that ten<k 
glow so typical of grandparents when he speaks I 
his childrens' offspring. 

Dr. Vinal is one of the most cooperative p< 
imaginable. In his unassuming, modest way he does 
all that he can to help his students and associates

Editor's Note: 

Please refer to the column Looking Things Over 
for the answer to your first paragraph. In regards 
to the remainder of your letter, let me say that the 
Collegian commends you highly for your school spirit 
and believe that your suggestions to the student body 
are worthy of the greatest praise. However, I do not 
feel that your reference to the Collegian of last spring 
was intelligently chosen. Whatever mistakes that might 
have been made last spring should not be subjects of 
discussion for this fall. After all, they are past and 
should be forgotten, not kept in the back of ones mind 
until an advantageous opportunity arises to express a 
pent-up bitterness. Any attempt to reflect discredit 
on the Collegia ti in this manner merely to prove a 
point in a present issue is certainly in poor taste. 


Dear Editor: 

School spirit is an intangible thing. Arguments can 
go on for ever as to why it does or does not exist. 
But that it does exist in great measure at our univer- 
sity I can verify. Several weeks ago I revealed to a 
joint meeting of Adelphia, Isogon, the Maroon ley, 
the Scrolls, The Collegian, WMUA, and the Interfra- 
ternity Council, the plight of the marching band. I 
would like to thank these groups for coming and above 
all for the evident work they put into the problem. 
My very special thanks to the committee formed by 
( .nnie Petroski, Dave Baker, Bob Grayson, Judy Lap- 
pin, Judy Broder, and Gin Leccese . . . who carried the 
brunt of the job, and to Wayne Langill and Lloyd Sin- 
clair for their spirit of cooperation.

Fred J. Sievers 
To Retire After 
22 Years Service 

Fred J. Sievtrs, director of both 
the University of Massachusetts grad- 
uate school and the agricultural ex- 
periment station, will retire next 
month after 22 years of service.. 

Director Sievers came to the Univ- 
ersity in 1928 from the State College 
of Washington, where he was heal 
of the department of soils, and where 
he had established himself as an auth- 
ority on the management of arid and 

Irrigated soils. 

Soon after his arrival at the Am- 
herst school where he became director 
of the experiment station, he was 
named Dean of the School of Agri- 
culture. He served in this dual capa- 
city until 1932 when he gave up the 
deanship to become director of the 
graduate school. 

Through his own research work be- 
fore becoming a full-time education- 
al administrator, Director Sievers was 
credited with producing convincing 
evidence that soil nitrogen, and not 
moisture, was the immediate limitimr 
factor in crop production in the great 
grain-producing areas in the country. 

In 1049, he was elected a Fellow 
in the American Society of Agronomy. 
In that year, he also served on th<- 
board of Distinguished Service 
Awards of the federal department of 

In addition to this work as an edu- 
cator. Director Sievers has been act- 
ive in community and civic affairs. 
At present, he is vice-president of 
the hoard of directors of the Cooley- 
Dickinson Hospital in Northampton. 

He was active in establishing tin- 

Community Cheat organization in Am- 
herst and was director of its first 
self-conducted campaign. He WM 
chairman of the committee named 
by the Amherst selectmen that made 
the- final recommendation for the pur- 
chase of the present water system 
of the town. 

A native of Wisconsin, Director 

Steven attended the University of 

Wisconsin. He and Mrs. Sievers have 
three children: .leanette, director of 
personnel for a business concern in 

Greensboro, N. C; Howard, in charge 

of sales for the northeastern region 
of the I.ederle l.ahratorics at Boston; 
and Frederick, representative of the 
Highway Users Association at Wash- 
ington D. C. 

Editor's Note: 

Harvey did not mention that it was through his 
dynamic and spirited campaign to aid the band and 
particularly by his calling an informal meeting of 
camptlfl organizations to support a fellow group that 
he made possible the accomplishments of the committee 
and the itttdettt body.

Round Robin Teas 
Held Sunday For 
Future Hellenes 

On Sunday afternoon and evening, 
! October 15, the jumble of Greek let- 
ters which have been puzzling the 
freshmen for these past few weeks 
came alive as the first-year girls 
were introduced to the tradition of 
Round Robin teas. 

For several days previous to the 
event, the sorority sisters in each 
house had been busy preparing for 
the avalanche of nearly three hund- 
red girls who came to chat, sip tea, 
munch cookies and cake, and be 
shown around the houses. 

The prospective sisters were divid d 
into groups, each group lead by two 
upperclassmen from one house to an- 
other, with twenty minute visit peri- 
ods allowed for each house. By the 
time Sunday night was history, weary 
sisters had entertained at twelve of 
these twenty-minute teas, and the 
footsore frosh had walked from one- 
end of campus to another Including 
halfway into town. In addition, they 
had consumed untold numbers of cal-

"Learn To Fly" 
Thru Flying Club 

How often have you heard? "I'd 
like to learn to fly, but it costs t> 
much"? The Flying Club, a group of 
pilots at the U. of M, has derided to 
solve the p r ob lem , A meeting for those 
interested is to be held tonight at 7 
o'clock in room D, Old Chapel. 

The club will welcome new memi.. 
of both sexes. It is not necessary that 
you have experience. If you are a 
pilot, here la a chance to huild up time 
for additional ratings. 

The emphasis will be on low 0081 
flying. The cost will be less than 
one-third the prevailing rate at the 
local airport. The plane will l>e hang- 
ared at Northampton. Several of the 
members have cars, so transportation 
to the airport will be no problem.

Libucha Scores Twice 
In First Redman Win 

The University of Mass. varsity 

loeeer team scored its first victory 

of the current season Saturday when 
it defeated W.P.I., 3-1. 

The Maroon and White hooters 
scored first when co-captain Chet Li- 
bucha kicked home a goal from the 
left sidelines at 5:05 of the first per- 
iod. Almost all of the first quarter 
was played in Engineer territory. The 
rest of the game, however, was quire 
evenly played. 

Libucha scored again in the second 
canto on a cross shot from the right 
corner. The Engineers retaliated » 
the second period when Couto got a 
clean shot at the nets from in d.»M 
to narrow the count to 2-1 in f*W 
of the University. 

In the third quarter Ed Twardus 
sent home a long shot from the cen- 
ter of the field to lengthen the lead 
of the Briggsmen to 3-1. There was 
no further scoring in the game. 

The wind played a very strong fac- 
tor in the outcome of the contest for 
MTeral shots were carried just over 
the goals which would have been 
possible scores on a less windy day.

This is the third (and if we get any 
more threats, the last) in a series of 
articles on soccer. The first point up 
for discussion concerns the throw in 
after the ball goes out of bounds. The 
throw in is made by a player on the 
team opposite to that which last 
touched the ball. Both hands must be 
used for the throw in with the ball 
delivered from over the head. The 
thrower can't play the ball until an- 
other player has touched it. 

Next on the agenda is the goal 
kick, which is taken by a member of 
the defending side from within the 
area beside the net where the ball 
went over the goal line wide of the 
goal. Players have to remain outside 
the penalty area until the kick is 
made. The corner kick is made by the 
attacking team and occurs when the 
defensive squad was responsible for 
the ball going out of bounds. The 
kick, as its name signifies, is made 
from a corner of the field. 

Assisting the referee are two lines- 
men (the boys with the towels — no 
not the managers). Each patrols one 
length of the field and signifies when 
the ball goes out of bounds. 

Saturday there will be an audivis- 
nal lesson (the Education Department 
can take a bow) . The "Redmen will be 
hosts to the U of Connecticut hooters 
in a game starting at 2:00. 

Now your editor, instead of bang- 
ing his head against a brick wall, 
will start bouncing soccer balls off it 
(the head that is!). 

The men in purple and white failed 
to make much of a showing as the 
harriers in maroon pushed in five of 
the first seven runners to cross the 
line to defeat Williams by the de- 
cisive score of 21 to 36 here last 
Friday. The victory prevented Wil- 
liams from making a sweep of the fall 
sports, and was especially sweet since 
It evened up the score after last 
year's loss at Williamstown. 

Gteorge Coding, after two consecu- 
tive second places, finally ran away 
from everybody to capture top honors. 
He took the lead at the start and j 
held it all the way. Nobody could 
possibly have deserved to win a race 
any more than he did. Two years ago 
at Devens he appeared to have al- 
most no aptitude whatever. In the 
New England* that year, he was the 
last man to cross the line. Last year 
he improved considerably but hurt 
his ankle midway in the season. This 
year he is up with the leaders. His 
case is a remarkable example of what 
persistence and courage can accomp- 
lish, and deserves this mention be- 
cause it is worthy of emulation by 
those who. like him, do not have the 
natural ability to excel at the start 
of their competitive careers. 

The race, though, was a team vic- 
tory as well, and it was a well bal- 
anced and hard running group that 
won it. Wilson, of Williams, had 
things his own way in copping the 
second spot, but Halsey Allen and Da- 
mon Phinney fought a bitter duel 
for four miles with Dorian of Wil- 
liams, only edging him out at the 
very finish. Hal was third, 27 sec- 
onds behind George, and 1 ahead of 
Damon, who had about the same 
margin as Dorian. Behind in sixth 
and seventh spots were Walt Sargent 
and Al Duncan, both running a fine 
race. Harry Hopkins and Lou Buck 
rounded out the first seven for the 

Saturday. MIT plays host at 
Franklin Park in Boston. Last year 
they were overpowering but gradu- 
ation has hurt their team. The Red- 
men will be out to scalp the Engi- 
neers in a meet that may go either

Do you know that- 

Forty years ago the U of M downed 
Worcester Tech 14-5 in football for 
its first win of the season having pre- 
viously tied Rhode Island and lost to 
Dartmouth and Trinity. 

Thirty years ago the Redmen 
whipped Vermont 21-7 for their 
fourth straight win. That year the 
Maroon and White suffered only two 
defeats in the course of an eight- 
game season. 

In answer to Mr. Driscoll's letter 
which appears on page 2 there seems 
to be little that I can say for his 
statistics are accurate and one cannot 
argue with facts. What stood out in 
my mind was the amount of time the 
W.P.I, backfield had in which to 
throw their passes and which in this 
case led to their victory. 

Credit for this should have been 
given to W.P.I.'s offensive line and 
not taken away from the great job 
the University line did even though 
they were outweighed. 

As for last Saturday's game against 
Williams it can be described only 
as terrific. It was a game which the 
Eckmen were "up for". A contest 
which saw a twelve point favorite 
Williams team almost go down to de- 

The Redmen were not to be fooled 
with and they showed that from the 
beginning. At the end of the first pe- 
riod the purple looked as though 
they might run away with the game 
but the Eckmen were just getting 
warmed up. By the half they had 
tied the score and from then on the 
Redmen fought as they had never 
before and put on a devastating dis- 
play of team football. 

Credit for the closeness of the 
game cannot be given to any one in- 
dividual or any group of players. 
Reebenacker played his usual good 
game and after he was hurt Benoit 
came in to show that he too knew 
quite a bit about football. He passed 
j for two touchdowns, scored one and 
' did a great job in running the team. 

The Little Indians opened their Fullback Herb Bamel of D 
season before over 2000 fans Friday | ter lived up to his former honor « 
night by giving a great exhibition j Boston All-Star by scoring the l»j 
of spirit and class in downing the i ond touchdown of the game in ■ 
Wesleyan Frosh 28-13. The Maroon j middle of the first quarter and * 
and White scored twice in the first consistently gaining ground on ha* 
period and then proceeded to roll jabbing bucks into the Wesleyai \0 

along to victory 

All of the Redmen points were 
scored by Eastern Massachusetts 
boys, three of whom are from Great- 
er Boston, Quarterback George Mitch- 
ell, former Natick High star scored 
two touchdowns, the first coming on 
the seventh play of the game when he 
galloped over from the 24 and the 
second in the opening minutes of the

Aggies Beaten 13-0; 
Lose To Vermont 

Last Saturday, dedication ceremon- 
ies were held at the K. K. Hall ath- 
letic field at Vermont Academy, and 
the Vermont team got into the spirit 
of the occasion by beating the Stock- 
bridge football team 13-0. 

The entire story of the game can 
be attributed to the number of 
fumbles made by the Aggies. Early 
in the first period, a penalty and 
fumble gave Vermont the ball on tihe 
Ajigie 15, from where they quickly 
pushed it over to lead 7-0. A few 
minutee later, the Aggies set up an- ' an undefeated Engineer team 

other Vermont T.D. by another costly 
fumble that put them ahead 13-0 ani 
ost the Aggies the ball game. 

From that point on, the Aggies 
held their own in the ball game. They 
were constantly in Vermont territory, 
but pass interceptions and fumbles 
robbed the Blue and White of possible 

Mike Wright, 140 pound defensive 
player, turned in a sparkling perfor- 
mance, (apt. Dick Trenholm turned in 
a good performance on the line, and 
Fred Kelly, Bob Bishop, and Jim 
Stewart turned in some excellent 

Next Saturday, the Aggies will 
travel to Wentworth Institute to meet 

"Slim" Nolan, to mention a. few. Th? 
Ephmen rate as the best team iii*' 
Redmen will meet this season, so if 
Tommy Eck's cohorts put on similar 
exhibitions in their remaining gs. •!.«•«„ 
it should be a good season. 

What with the Boston College 
Eagle* on the frosh grid schedule and 

on two varsity schedules, the logical 
result is the present rumor that the 
Eaglet will turn up on the varsity 
football schedule. After all, the way 
B.C. has been playing, it could use 
a "soft" season's opener. However, 
fellow warriors and squaw.-, this is 
still rumor. The Redmen have Yankee 
Conference schedule committments to 
fulfill first. 

When ■ frosh team (the sport we 
shall not mention) defeated a var- 
sity team (the school we shall net 
mention) the latter desired to keep 
down the publicity. Maybe it wou'dn't 
be a bad idea! What happened to al:

through the sophomore year) stars

is a transfer from the University of 
Alabama, while Shelley transferred 
Hobart College. 
Last Thursday night, defending

their first victory of the year as they 
edged out a strong Kappa Sig sex- 
tet, 7-<i. Sparked by the passing of 
Uene Misiaszek, Kappa Sig jumped

Phi Sigma Kappa 

Phi Sigma Kappa announces the 
initiation of the following men on

Charles Goiter, and Louis Kigali; 
juniors, David Heed, Earl Raymond, 
and Harold Weston; sophomores, 
James Chapman, William Cody, Vin- 
cent Galli, Robert 'iarnett. 

The Phi Sig intramural football 
team is rolling along full force with 
two victories and no defeats. After 
unanimous dicision.s over Sig, Ep and 
Kappa Sig, the team is hoping for 
an undefeated season. Versatility 
among players such as Mac Payne, 
Don Costello, Bud Knight, Ed Mc- 
Cauley, Carl Ayhvard, and Bruce Wo- 
gan provides a combination that is 
hard to beat.

Tau Epsilon Phi 

For the eighth consecutive term, 
Tau Epsilon Phi has copped the In- 
t.rt'raternity Scholarship Cup. TEP 
has won this award, without missing 
a semester, since its post-war presen- 
tation; and the average for this se- 
mester was 78.88. 

TEP lost its first fraternity foot* 
ball game in two starts to Lambda 
Chi Alpha last Tuesday night by a 
score of 19-18. Since both teams w.-iv 
hampered by a deluge of rain, the 
efficiency of all running plays was 
greatly reduced. After Lambda Clii 
had taken a KM) lead, TEP strategy 
proved effective when a second team 
wearing duck webs took the field and 
literally swam across to score. Scar- 
ing for TEP were Sonny Gochberg 
and Stan Barron; and outstanding 
on defense were 'backs Barr, Less, 
Weinstein, and Gochberg, and 
men Waldman, Brady, Blauer, and 
Shuman. On the whole the victory 
was due to an excellent passing and 
receiving combination.

Q. T. V. 

During the past week, Q.T.V.'s 
football team split in their two 
games, to make their record 1-2. On 
Tuesday evening, in a torrential 
downpour, Q.T.V. was beaten by 
Theta Chi, 6-0, due to a skillful catch 
that set up the only touchdown of 
the game with only three minutes 
left to play. In fairness to both teams, 
the game should never have been 
played because of the condition of 
the field. 

Q.T.V. won its first game of the 
year when it defeated Alpha Gamma 
Rho, P2-6. Eddie Hession was the 
offensive star while Ed Burke and 
Bob Fedel excelled in defense. Hes- 
sion and Fellows scored for the win- 

Bill Spencer has been apointed 
Q.T.V.'s representative to the Stud-

Originating: this Tuesday, a pro- 
gram of popular music entitled, "Easy

each Tuesday and Thursday evening 
from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Frank Dono-

Many students have inquired how 
the Williams' game was broadcast 
from Williamstown last week. It was 
a cooperative venture of WMUA and 
WIPUO, the campus "Ham" station 
in Stockbridge Hall. The "Ham" sta- 
tion staff, under the guidance of Pro- 
fessor Smith, WMUA advisor, built 
a trailer with a portable-mobile trans- 
mitter. A crew drove to Williams with 
the trailer and reported the game 
bv Morse Code to the WIPUO office 
in Stockbridge attic. The code was 
then translated and relayed by Frank 
Spear to the WMUA studio where 
Norm Lee flashed the results to the 
listening audience. 

The resignations of Robert Servais 
as public relations director and Russ 
Beaumont as sports announcer have 
been accepted by Wayne Langhill, 
station director. Bob will remain with 
the station but in another capacity. 
His replacement will he named at a 
later date. "Beaver" Beaumont ha" 
returned to the football squad, and 
will he replaced by Joe T>omhrowski. 
Larry Higgins. and Bruce Wogan. 

Those who appreciate the local ia?.z 
m-isicians will he pleased to hear that 
half-hour tape recordings were made 

of the bands at the Sportsmen's 
Club and Johnny Green's. 

Next Wednesday evening, PBS will 
present the first of a series of broad- 
casts from the stage of the Amherst 
Theatre. The program will include a 
quiz show with prizes for successful 
contestants. Equipment from both

girl was heard to remark, "It seems 
as if I've done nothing but eat since 

The members weren't so fortunate; 
they had the task of preparing refresh- 
ments for three hundred guests, but 
not the enjoyment of eating their 
dainty delicacies. That will no doubt 
explain the hungry, haggard look 
found on many sorority members' 
faces around ten o'clock Sunday night. 

Gruelling as all this sounds, the 
Round Robin teas are an important

First In The Country 








The new school of agriculture and horticulture with twelve 
departments contained therein will be undoubtedly one of the 
m£t powerful agricultural schools in the ^-™^£Z 
as separate schools, agriculture, horticulture, and the Stockbndge 
school of agriculture have not failed to make themselves promi- 
nent in the extensive field of Agriculture the world over. To prove 
this statement the Collegian offers the following report on the 
a^icuiurrachievements of this University. (Note: the author 
of this report has not been identified as yet.) 
Achievements in the field of methods of Instruction: 

In Economics . . , . 

1 First college to organize an independent course of stud> in 
Agricultural Economics and the first to include in this 
.nuit ' in cooperative agriculture, marketing of agricultural 
products and transportation of agricultural products. 

In Horticulture -^ ._. 

2 First college to organize a separate Department of Pomol- 
ogy. (1907) . „. . 
First college to organize a separate Department of flori- 
culture. (1908) 

First college to organize a separate Department of Land- 
scape Gardening. (1908) _ 
First college to offer a formal course of study in Foresti>. 
(1887) , . , 
First college to provide a glass plant house of commercial 
size for instruction purposes. (Durfee Plant House, 1867) 
First college to organize a separate Department of Vege- 
table Gardening. (1908) 

First college to offer class instruction in Horticultural Man- 
ufactures. (1914) 

First to offer a course of instruction (eleven weeks dura- 
tion) for Greenkeepers. (1927) Has been followed by Wis- 
consin, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

First to organize definite systematized courses in Entomol- 
ogy leading to M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees. (1899) 
First college to establish a Department of Agricultural Ed- 

IiTan^oT'these "firsts" this college has been followed by all or 
nearly all of the agricultural colleges of the country. 

Achievements in Research. 

1 Originated the plan of nursery fruit tree certification and 
the methods by which misnamed trees can be identified in 
the nursery. 

2. The first bulletin on Household Insects and their control, 
ever issued, was published here in 1889. 
The discovery of the presence in this country of many for- 
eign posts was first made by members of this staff or grad- 
uates of the college, for example: Brown Tail Moth, 1897; 
Oriental Moth. 1906; the Gypsy Moth and the European 
Corn-Borer. 1917. 

Discovery of control methods for insect pests, as follows: 
A parasite for the Asparagus Beetle, 1909; A method for 
the protection of seed corn from wire worms, 1909. A para- 
site of the San Jose Scale, 1912: A method for control of 
Red Spider in greenhouses, 1917. 

Modern practices in so-called tree surgery are based largely 
on methods originated by Dr. G. E. Stone when he was 
Head of the Department of Botany at this College. 
Methods for the control of many plant disease have been 
originated at this College, ie. formaldehyde treatment for 
control of smut disease of onions, seed bed sanitation and 
spraying with Bordeaux mixture lor control of tobacco 
wildfire, changing soil reaction to control tobacco root-rot, 
sterilization of greenhouse soil by steam to control lettuce 
drop, tomato and cucumber stem-rot. and other soil-borne 
diseases, vaporization of sulphur in greenhouses for control 
of tomato leaf-mold.

University have always shown that 
they were completely behind their 
team, win or lose. This was the prop-

Tidbit of Opinion 

by Bob Davies 





Several fleas have 
been pestering me so 
that I have sub- 
mitted to their de- 
mands — on condition 
that they find some 
other dog. They 
want me to bark or 
growl on our col- 
lege institution of 
education. It is hard to do otherwise. 
To their first question Why do girls 
come to school? I can only say that 
I don't know. But I feel that the 
girls also don't know. 

The next is more difficult. They i 
want to know what the college pro- 
fessors are here for. I feel there are 
various reasons: some haven't died 
yet. Some are here to replace adding 
machines with humans. Some arc 
here to make you grovel in the dust 
of moldy hooks. Some are here to 
entertain. Some are here to make 
good subjects and predicates of you. 
Some are here to make a dollar or 
three. Some are here to teach. 

One question what is college for? 
interest* me. Should college be a nur- 
sery, a grammar school, a diplom; 
factory, a social or non-social tea 
party, an organ for the promotion of 
patriotic citizens? I think college 
should be a place where teachers and 
students come to learn what they

by (Jin Leceese 

Let's face it, teaching is not only an art, but also a profes- 
sion. The teacher's position in the world is no different from that 

e grocer's, the Fuller Brush man's, or even that of seller of 
smutty French postcards. In plain words, his job is to teach ; not 

pew forth sundry facts and figures that the student may or 
may not digest, but to ingrain into the minds of the students the 
values of that subject at which he professes to be an expert. 

In order to accomplish his task, the teacher must first sell 
himself and then sell his product to the "buyer" as any good busi- 
nessman would do. Today, many a lecturer stands before the class 
tml talks; when he is finished, he leaves. No consideration is giv- 
es to the student as an individual, or to his individual problems 
ind vagaries. Now while this may have worked out admirably in 
the days of the old classical school, the specialization of courses to- 
day tends to make the whole outlook ridiculous, dull, and utterly. 
oringly useless. 

At best, the teacher should produce a student who goes forth 
with more useful knowledge than that with which he entered the 
lass. By useful, I refer to the knowledge which pertains to basic 
facts, not to the superficial trimmings which often cloud the true 
issue. It often happens that in English grammar courses, students 
tie forced to learn, or rather to memorize, rules governing punctu- 
ation, tenses, etc. In many classes, more attention is paid to seeing 
that the student learns the wording of rules letter perfect than 

ring that he puts down these rules to good use. The whole 
purpose of the course is bogged down in a mass of trivial asinin- 
ity. Likewise, in most high school and college language courses, 
more attention is paid to the translation into English than is paid 
to the actual comprehension of the foreign language in its own 

This production of which I speak is not as simple as it may 
| -rem. As the saying goes, "You can lead a horse to water, but it' 
e wants beer, you're out of luck, ain't you!" Likewise, in teach- 
|injr. the student must be made to want to learn or nothing can 
be accomplished. Lack of interest means lack of study and lack of 
I knowledge. Now, one could argue that in college, at least, students 
luppoaed to elect courses in which they are interested before- 
hand. However, what of botany for the English major, or Lit. 
|25 for the poultry farmer? Even a major can become extremely 
I boring if poorly presented. It is up to the teacher to place in the 
students a competitive spirit, not against one another for marks 
(alone, but between the student and his natural inclination towards 
baring, to make him want to learn in spite of himself. 

Believe me, as a student who has been on probation, I know 
Ithat interest cannot be aroused by flat lectures on the previous 
lusignments. All the effort must not be expended by the lecturer 
alone. The student must teach himself. Despite what BO many 
"teachers" seem to believe, this cannot be accomplished by gobs 
of homework and daily quizzes which serve as dictatorial inquisi- 
ions determining whether the individual is a grind or an occa- 
sional barfly. Knowledge of this sort, the student ingests and re- 
gurgitates with the facility of an overdose of stale beer. 

On the contrary, the student must be guided to the point 
Miere he will tax his own ingenuity to learn. To do this, he must 
I 1 * given the opportunity to discuss each main point and to come 
Ito his own conclusions. No one on this earth is infallible, and no 
Iteacher should expect to be treated as such. /A classic example 
leal student-teacher relations is presented in the story of the 
[Roman teacher who claimed that man was a two-legged feather- 
l being. On the next day, a student came in with a plucked 

chicken, hit the prof over the head with it, and said, "Here is 
poor man." Now I'm not suggesting that we all beat our profs 

w« their heads with dead chickens, since the pedagogue of today 

lay not be as strong in constitution as that of yesteryear. Still. 

the good teacher will always respect and learn from his students' 


Last, but hardly least, is the manner in which material is 
Presented. Helen Modjeska, a great actress of past years, once 
educed an audience to tears by reciting the Polish alphabet. The 
jslobberings of some of our mentors could make the Lord's Prayer 
pound like a no-very-funny smutty story. No matter how useful 
fhe material, the professor must first get his class to listen. 

It is only if one follows these precepts that he can be said to 
accomplishing his purpose — that of selling his product in the 
?J t way to the students.

Harriers Lose 
23-32 To M.I.T. 

Departing en masse from the good 
form they showed a week ago in top- 
pling Williams, the cross country 
team lost a meet they expected to win 
as thcv l>owed to MIT at Boston last 
Saturday. It was one of those woeful 
days when it semed that everybody 
was "off" and there was just no con- 
test after the first two miles. 

Nicholson of MIT led all the way 
to take individual honors. George 
Coding just missed second place when 
VickeM of MIT beat him out ma 
sprint finish. Hal Allen, back in fifth 
place in the meet, was second for the 

Kedmen. , 

Another factor which deepened the 
doom was the departure after the 
race <>f George Coding, number one 
man all season, who reported for ac- 
tive duty with the Army last Tues- 
day Hil loss is a severe blow and 
will bo felt in the remaining four 
moots. The team's performance was 
a disappointing finale to his collegiate 
miming ctiW. but there is a poss.- 
bilitv that he will be eligible for one 
more soason on his return from the 

sorvice. . . , . 

Saturday, the harriers run their last 
dual -neet of the season against Bos- 
ton College. The meet will take place 
botwoon the halves of the football 
jramo. Nothing is known about the 
opposition but the Redmen are die 
to be bouncing back after Saturdays

Aggies In Tie 
With Wentworth 

On Saturday, October 21, the Stock- 
bridge football team traveled to Bos- 
ton where they played a scoreless 
game with Wentworth Institute on a 
typical Indian summer day. A gath- 
ering of 200 witnessed the tight, hot- 
fought game which for the most part 
took place in mid-field. On one occa- 
sion fullback Kelly broke through the 
walled defensive and spiked up 80 
yards before he was hauled down. 
Bishop charged through for a further 
gain of 10 yards bringing the Stock- 
bridge team on the opponents 20. 
The scoring opportunity was then 
lost in a fumble. In the second half 
Wentworth went down to the Stock- 
bridge 20, but found themselves un- 
able to further penetrate the line. In 
the 3rd quarter Stockbridge plowed 
deep into enemy territory. But, down 
on the 10 yard line another fumble 
broke the threat of a score. 

Metcalf, right guard for Stock- 
brdige, was seriously injured in the 
knees and will be out the remainder 
of the year. Steward received a neck 
injury and had to leave the game. 

The game was close throughout the 
afternoon. Stockbridge completed two 
out of six forward passes, but de- 
pended on end runs and center 
plunges for advancement. 

Two weeks from Saturday, at 2:30, 
Stockbridge will compete with Lei- 
cester Junior College on the Univer- 
sity Campus. 

Lineups: Kelly, FB; Steward, LHB; 
Bishop, RHB; Desmond, QB; Collins,

Fourteen Year Streak 
Of Mt. Hermon Broken 
By Little Indians 

Paced by the fine running of Harry 
Aldrirh, the freshman harriers broke 
,,tr Mount Hermon's fourteen year 
winning streak in dual competition a 
k ago Wednesday as they took 
t!i,' first three places to win 24 to 32. 
Harry showed that he is a man to 
watch as he chalked up his third in- 
dividual win. Never pressed, he was 
,,ut in front all the way. 

The meet itself was in some doubt 
over most of the distance, until Lee 
Chisholm and George McMullin forged 
ahead of the Mount Hermon leader 
to assure the victory. George moved 
himself up several notches in moving 
into the third spot on the team. Pio 
Angelini and Hank Knap, in seventh 
and eleventh positions respectively, 
completed the scoring for the maroon, 
with Russell and Wheeler making up 
the rest of the septet. 

MIT 25, Frosh 30 
In their second meet in four days, 
the freshmen spoiled their perfect 
record by losing out to the MIT year- 
lings Saturday, despite the individ- 
ual victory of Harry Aldrich. Harry 
had thinps pretty much his own Avay, 
winning by nearly a minute, in the 
k r„od time" of 17:40. MIT, however, 
showed too much strength in captur- 
ing the next three places despite the 
efforts of Hank Knapp, who was sec- 
ond for the UM cause. Hank missed 
fourth place by only a second. Mc- 
Mullin, Angelini, and Chisholm fin- 
ished seventh, eighth, and ninth, but 
N'utley of the victors had a little too 
much distance on them at the finish 
for them to catch him. Duane Wheel- 
er and Rob Steere just missed dis- 
placing MIT's last scorer. The meet 
was close but the Engineers had it 
in the important stretch drives to 
wrap up the win. 

On Saturday, the freshmen take on 
both the Springfield College and Bos- 
ton College first year men in a meet 
that will start and finish some time 
during the first half of the football 
jrame with Northeastern. 

Redmen Meet Huskies 
In Second Home Start 

Tommy Eck will bring our Redme'i 
back to" Alumni Field Saturday to 
meet Northeastern in what will be 
the first home appearance of the Ma- 
roon and White since the successful 
opener against Bates. Maybe the old 
familiar stamping grounds will help 
the boys get back in the win column. 

It's pretty obvious that the Split 
"T" is just what the doctor ordered 
for the U-M offense. In four con- 
tests the Redmen have tallied an av- 
erage of 27 points per game which 
is not to be scoffed at. Should the 
boys with the tomahawks manage 
to cut down the opposition's offense, 
more scalps will be in the offing. 

Derbymen Lose 
Ace George Goding 

George Goding, the outstanding 
member of the cross country team all 
fall has been recalled to active duty 
with the Army. He ran his last race 
for the Redmen last Saturday against 
MIT, and reported to Fort Devens on 

George first came into his own as 
a long distance runner when he placed 
25th in the Boston Marathon last 
spring. One of the better road runners 
in New England this summer, he has 
led the hill-and-dalers in each of their 
meets to date. After training at Camp 
Hood, Texas, he expects to be as- 
signed in Germany. 

Do You Know That- 

Thirty-six years ago Massachusetts 
downed the Holy Cross football squad 
11-0 for its first win of the season 
having previously lost to Dartmouth 


Fifty-six years ago the "Aggies" 
walloped Boston University B2-0 to 
highlight a fairly successful grid 

Two (yes, only two) years ago the 
U of M scored three fourth quarter 
touchdowns to down Worcester Tech 
> bv a 2^-7 score. 

Did you ever wonder why year af- 
ter year in professional athletics 
teams seem to win more games at 
home than away. After all aren't 
these the boys who play for pay, who 
laugh at the old rah-rah? Why do 
they win more times at home? They 
.say it's because of a number of fac- 
tors, not the least of which is the 
fact that the players know the fans 
are behind them. It's a great boost 
for a team which knows the fans are 
behind it, are rooting and cheering 
for it. 

Now this doesn't mean that to have 
support from the stands is a cure-all, 
and that what a losing club needs 
is fans, but if you've ever taken part 
in any competition you know the 
boost that comes with having some 
fans. Sometimes, when you're losing, 
it's pretty hard to get those onlookers 
to stay behind you. Maybe you'll win 
occasionally and they'll come back 
for a while. Of course, there are 
some fans — Webster calls them "die- 
hards!" Through thick and thin they 
stay by their team. Nobody appreci- 
ates these die-hards more than the 
team itself. 

Have we got die-hards on this 
campus? We have supporters sticking 
by their teams through thick and 
thin, a fact not hard to prove. In 
the sense that our athletic teams 
over the past few years have not 
been winning outfits, these fans are 
die-hards. But "die-hards" is a crude 
term which we shall reserve for those 
who daily or weekly pay a buck or 
two to watch their favorite profes- 
sional outfit. 

We haven't got die-hards! In the 
first place they aren't going to die. 
In the second place they are just 
loyal students with the kind of school 
spirit one can be proud of. They don't 
speak of THE football team. They 
call it OUR football team. Sure they 
don't play and they don't carry the 
water buckets, but they're in seventh 
heaven when the team wins, and 
ready to knock the block off the first 
>ruy who, when the team loses, starts 
complaining about a bunch of bums. 
And there are a number of other 
qualities in these "sons of the valley." 
They haven't caught that much-to- 
prevalent campus idea of each man 
for himself, for nobody else gives 
a darn about you. Although they 
realize somebody has to lose, they 
hate to lose, and when they do they 
allay their anger through various 
means, some of which they later feel 
sorry for. One other quality we might 
mention, they don't wait for beautiful 
day's to decide to go to a football 
game. They grab a heavy sweater 
and jacket and on cold Friday nights 
they yell themselves hoarse as though 
they were watching a bowl game, 
though in reality it is the frosh team. 
These are the people who realize 
that a number of things go to make 
up this university. The chiming of 
the chapel bells in the twilight, the 
blue sky mirrored in the college pond, 
the long hike up the hill, the foot- 
ball team. These are the ones— frosh 
to senior — who in years to come will 
be able to look back, and feel the 
warmth inside that comes with those 
words they now sing with pride, 
"Massachusetts— yours and mine."

Ball men Triumph 
Over UConn 20-12 
For Second in Row 

The U. of M. frosh football team 
won its second straight game of the 
season when it defeated the Univer- 
sity of Conn, freshmen, 20-12 before 
a shivering crowd of 2000 on Alumni 
Field Friday night. 

A Connecticut tumble on its own 
34-yard line which was recovered by 
Herb Bamel set up the initial UM 
tally. After George Mitchell had 
picked up nine yards, Mercadante 
plunged 16 more. From there Charley 
Redman scored on a wide end sweep. 
"Buster" DiVincenzo's conversion try 
was partially blocked and the score 
stood fi-0. There was no further scor- 
ing in the first half although the 
Huskies were almost exclusively in 
Redman territory, but the Univer- 
sity's 5-3-3 defense staved off all 
goalward thrusts of the UConn boys. 

Touchdown On Kickoff 

The picture was completely changed 
as far as the score goes, however, 
within the first 15 seconds of play in 
the second half. Fullback "Tillie" Du 
Boss took the UM kickoff and scooted 
79 yards down the sidelines to pay- 
dirt. Larson's try for the extra point 
was blocked and the tilly stood at 

A fumble on the Connecticut 20 by 
the U. of Mass., paradoxical as it 
seems, helped rather than hindered 
them. Subsequently, on the fourth 
down, after trying to get the neces- 
sary 10 yards, the Huskies elected to 
punt. The kick was blocked, how- 
ever, by end Phil Costello on the 
UConn 15. After Charley Redman 
had piled up 11 yards to the four, 
George Mitchell took it over. This 
time DiVincenzo's kick was good and 
the reckoning was 13-6 in favor of 
the University. 

The Ballmen weren't finished yet, 
however. After Mitchell and Bill Ry- 
an had collaborated on a 30-yard 
pass to the UConn 5, Billy Rex 
plunged over. DiVincenzo's kick was 
again good and the score was 20-6. 

Harlan Bugers provided the last 
flicker of hope for the boys from the 
Nutmeg State when he lugged the 
pigskin 45 yards to paydirt early in 
the last period. When the Huskies 
got a life on the extra point on a 
UM offside penalty, the kick was 
again blocked and the final tally read 

Outstanding for the Little Indians 
were Herb Bamel, Harry Stathopou- 
los, Ed Brophy, George Mitchell, and 
Charleys St. Paul and Redman. For 
the UConn frosh the individual stars 
were Ed Blanchard, Frank Cravino, 
Mike Ben, and the field general, Don 
Sabino who did an excellent job in 
directing the attack of the game but 
out-gunned Connecticut team. 
The lineups: 

MASS.: Ends, Yukob, Costello, Cas- 
ey. Tackles, Stathopoulas, Wilson, 
Carty. Cullinan. Guards, Brophy, 
Crandone, Foley. Center, Johnson. 
QB, St. Paul. Mitchell. HB, Merca-

Ross. Ben. 

The Redmen offense rolled 
in high gear at Meade Field la i

team that scores the most point 
was as true as ever, and the R] I

Briggsmen In Go 
Against Trinity 
Here Saturday 

The U-M hooters will play host to 
Trinity College this Saturday start- 
ing at 1:00 on the new soccer field. 
The Briggsmen will be seeking their 
second victory of the season, having 
a favorable verdict over Worcester 
polytech. The Trinity contest will be 
the last home soccer game with the 
exception of the November 8 game 
with Springfield. 

Last week New England Champion 
Amherst College finally managed to 
Rain a triumph over the Briggsmen. 
It marked the first time in four years 
the Jeffs have been able to down the 
Maroon and White even though our 
boys have been underdogs in every 
game. Apparently Little Lord Jeffery 
thinking of those games as he 
plastered the Redmen 6-0. 

This year's game was scheduled as 
a home contest for the Briggsmen, 
but what with the new baseball back- 
stop on the Alumni Field soccer area, 
and the girls holding classes on what 
\t known as the girls' athletic field, 
the hooters were forced to go to Am- 
herst College to play their game. 
Naturally this proved a psychological 
blow (thank you Dr. Neet) to our 

Last Saturday the Maroon and 
White battled the University of Con- 
necticut to a 1-1 tie which makes the 
season's record to date stand one win, 
four losses and one tie. That's all 
right, though, because we still have 
four games to go and can still finish 
over the .500 mark. 

After the Trinity affair the Red- 
men will journey to Worcester to 
play Clark on November 4. A home 
game with Springfield will follow on 
the eigth. The season will ring down 
at Medford on November 11 against 
Tufts. Last year the Brigsmen blast- 
ed the Jumbos off the field. "We did 
it before, and we can do it again." 

Little Indians Win; 
Then Bow To Amherst 

The Little Indian hooters defeated 
Smith Vocational School 2-0 last 
Wednesday for their first victory of 
the young season. On Saturday the 
Amherst frosh nosed out our boys 

Against Smith the Maroon and 
White grabbed an early lead thanks 
to the talented toe of Dave Yesair. 
In the second quarter "Limey Al" 
Hoelzel scored his second goal of the 
season and the U of M had two to 
nothing margin by which it van- 
quished the Vokes. The second half 
found the Cartrabertimen holding off 
the visitors to rack up the win. 

It was a diferent story on Satur- 
doy when the frosh bowed by 2-0 to 
the Amherst frosh. 

The Jeffs scored in the first quar- 
ter on a goal by Cracknell and added 
their final tally in stanza three on 
a goal by Townshend. The contest 
wma featured by the brilliant goal 
tending of Carl Clapp. 

Tuesday the Little Indians tackled 

Konsoa High on Alumni Field. Sat- 

iy Williston Academy will be hosts 

( and the frosh intend to make them 

?ood hosts) to the Maroon and White.

The Intramural grid season contin- 
ues to roll along, and class is begin-

have played what up to now consists 
of a full schedule. 

Phi Sig leads the frat loop while 
League B finds Middlesex "A" as the 
only unbeaten outfit. Last year's In- 
tramural champion, Berkshire "B" i3 
rolling along unbeaten with five tri- 
umphs. The Bombers have two other 
undefeated clubs in the league, name- 
ly Chadbourne "D" with two wins and 
the Independents with one.

fered its first defeat, this at the 
hands of the Mills House A. C. Th- 
only touchdown came on an inter-

passing of Bill McNamara and Jim 
Turco, and by the defensive play of 
both teams. 

On Thursday the 19th Berkshire 
"A" downed Greenough 13-6. Chad- 
bourne "B" gained a forfeit win over 
the Commuters. Lambda Chi routed 
Alnha Cam 19-0, and the annual TFP 
AEPi game ended in a 12-6 TEP 
triumph. Phi Sig and SAE won their 
games to remain at and near the top 
of their loop. 

Tonight at 7:00 the Commuters 
meet Hamlin B and SAE meets Kap- 
pa Sig. It's LC-QTV and TEP-SPE 
at 7:45 while at 8:30 AGR meets 
AEPi and league-leading PSK plays 
winless ZZZ. Though still seeking 
their first triumph the Tri Zates 
have played in some hard luck lately, 
losing a couple of close ones. 

Here is tomorrow's schedule: 7:00 
Butterfield A vs Berkshire C and 
Mills A vs. Chadbourne C; at 7:45 
Middlesex A vs Hamlin A and Berk- 
shire A vs. Plvmouth A; at 8:30 
Greenough vs. Hamlin C and Chad- 
bourne A vs. Butterfield C 

Just to keep the record straight, 
Berkshire "B" is the defending chamn 
by virtue of their routing AEPi 27-1 S 
last year. Now those who saw words 
fco a diferent effect last week can 
rest in peace.

I '<ar Editor, 

Last week, a student of this cam- 
pus, Edward Sexton, T)2, a member 
of the Maroon Key, went to the in 
firmary with a severe stomach aclv 
and abdominal pains. Upon examina- 
tion by Doctor Radeliffe, he was told 
that he was suffering from ptomaine 
poisoning. Shortly afterwards, S.x- 
ton'l father removed the boy tn the 
GrMI)fi«id hospital. There it was 
learned that he was in reality suffer- 
itiil from a severe rase of ruptured 
appendix I As a result, Sexton was in 
serious shape for a while, and only 
this week has he started on the road 
to recovery. As a result of the late 
diagnosis, students of this campus 
willingly went to Greenfield to give 
blood to aid the weakened boy. 

It is a shocking example of the in- 
efficiency of the medical staff of this 
university when the doctor cannot 
even tell the difference between pto- 
maine poisoning and a ruptured ap- 
pendix. A near fatal mistake was 
made this time. Must we wait for a 
fatal one before something is done to 
correct the situation?

A Great Loss 

The death of A. Anderson Mackimmie, on October 20, Dean 
of the School of Liberal Arts, Emeritus, has left this University 
without his personal, ever-helpful, and friendly spirit which he 
instilled throughout his many years here, although absent from 
the campus the past two years. 

Professor Mackimmie first came to the University, then the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1908 as an instructor of 
French and Spanish, and later taught Italian, Economics, and 
History. He served, before his retirement in 1948, as assistant 
Dean of the College, head of the Division of Humanities, and fin- 
ally Dean of the School of Liberal Arts. 

Yet, a summary of positions and duties of a man as the late 
Professor Mackimmie seems so inadequate to measure his true 
value to the school and his fellow man. Perhaps the full scope 
of his greatness and our loss was best expressed in the Alumni 
Bulletin by Professor Frank Rand, his colleague and successor. 

"This university is the creation of many hands. . and heads 
and hearts. Into its" living spirit has gone the lifeblood of a host 
of sons and daughters. Their share in its greatness is infinitely 
varied. . . But were it possible to resolve the compound into its 
innumerable essences, there would be found very few of higher 
potency or more enduring influence than Anderson Mackimmie." 

The Golden Opportunity 

Visitors by the thousands are expected to be entering our 
school grounds this weekend to participate in the most eventful 
program of the year. The success of this three day program which 
includes the Horticulture Show, Homecoming, and Legislators' 
Day will depend to a great degree on you, the members of the 
student body, faculty, and administration. 

'Many of our visitors will be here for the first time and some 
of these "may have erroneous conceptions about the University. 
This is our golden opportunity to demonstrate to the guests that 
we are proud to be associated with the school and would exchange 
it for no other. Remember, the visitors will judge our University 
by not only its physical appearance but also by its members !

proaching festivities is Raymond H. 
Otto professor of landscape architec- 
ture at the U. of M. Although he was 
born in the thriving city of Lawrence, 
Professor Otto prefers the serenity 
and quiet of our peaceful hamlet. 

He first became acquainted with 
the multifold joys of Amherst life 
in 1922 when he became a member of 
the student body of Mass. Aggie. Af- 
ter a series of trial and error pro- 
cedures, he finally settled on land- 
scape architecture as a major. Like 
many of the undergraduates of to- 
day, he enrolled in the ROTC which 
at that time was called the horse 
cavalry. His reasons for joining that 
group were simple: he enjoyed riding 
and he needed the money. It is inter- 
esting to note that in his graduating 
class there were but twenty girls 
who in turn outnumbered the coeds in 
the other three classes. 

fessionally. He then decided that r, 
needed further education and enrolls] 
at Harvard Graduate School. 

After completing his studio 
Harvard (where he tried hard not | 
acquire the famous acent), he re- 
turned to professional work with th- 
firm of Desmond and Yarwood. H- 
remained with this firm until criti- 
cal economic conditions forced the o: 
fice to close in 1932. 

Although jobs were diffiult to fn : 
in those years of world wide depna 
sion, Mr. Otto had little trouble get 
ting a position with the National 
Park Service, as regional advisor a 
conservation. This position involved 
developing large natural areas f 
boating and fishing. 

On the request of a member of th- 
faculty of Mass. State, he resigad 
from his job and accepted a teachii^ 
assignment here for one semester. Al

Williams College Record 

Marking the fall's first large-scale 
invasion of the Williams campus by 
the female sex, the approaching week- 
end is frought with danger for the 
unsuspecting college man. The har- 
vest moon, the aroma of burning 
leaves, and the crisp fall air ereate 
an atmosphere in which the under- 
graduate is particularly susceptible 
to feminine charms. 

Beware, gentlemen, for the conse- 
quences are far reaching. A moment's 
hesitation may commit you for life. 
Today's promising young scholar may 
be tomorrow's breadwinner. Why case 
aside a glorious future for the drudg- 

ery and shackles of married life? Or 
worse yet, why leave yourself open 
to the cruel and unabashed feminine 
deception? Many a bright career has 
been blighted by an unrequited love.

Goose was sad. . . She thought child-

tails cut off. But now there's a new 
reads an advertisement in the recent 
book-review section of the Neu- York- 

The advertisement goes on to quote 
the "new happy version" of The 
Three I'dind Mice. In this emasculated 
rendition, the mice, instead of being 
sightless, are altruistic, i. e. "Three 
kind mice"! And in keeping with the 
cheery mood, instead of severing the 
rodents' waving appendages the far- 
mer's wife uses her knife to reward 
their benef icient mien with slices from 
her best limburger. Next, the adver- 
tisement, in great exultation, claims 
that, "This is the greatest advance 
in childrens' books in 200 years". 

Say it isn't so! I have a nostalgic 
affection for the unexpurgated old 
Mother Goose wherein "everyone is 
kind and everyone is happy"! And

these myopic perversions upon the

3000 Throng Cage For Concert 
By Adele Addison, Famous Soprano 

Adele Addison, young Springfield type of song she sang. 

This talented young soprano re- 
ceived her bachelor's degree in music 
at the Westminster Choir College i>i 
New Jersey and afterwards won a 
scholarship to the Berkshire Music 
Center. Two years later she made 
her debut in Boston and has bee i 
winning the approval of critics ever 
since. Her conceit here is part of i 
nation-wide tour that will cover thirty 
cities and also includes appearances 
at Dartmouth and Williams. As usj- 
al, in presenting Miss Addison, the 
University Concert Association has 
lived up to its high standards. 

loprtBO, opened the University Con- 
ceit Season Tuesday night in the 
i Ige, The audience, which filled a- 
• two-thirds of the seating capa- 
city, seemed at first lukewarm in 
their reception of the singer; but her 
pertonal charm and the beauty of her 
voice finally won them over to an 
-nthusiastic demand for four encores. 

Miss Addison, accompanied by pi- 
ri Robert Ewing, began her re- 
cital with a trio of English love 
p by l'urcell, Dowland, and Han- 
del. Her next selection was an aria 
from Mozart's "The Marriage of Fig- 
am" entitled "Dove Sono." After 
this she sang a group of German 
tongs by Schubert and Brahms. 
"(iretchen Am Spinnerade" especially 
gave Miss Addison a chance to dis- 
play the warmth and range of her 
art. For an encore to the first por- 
tiun of her program she sang another 
long in German. 

The second half comprised four 
*oiiks in French, both humorous and 
sentimental, by Monsigny, Chausson, 
sad Bachelet; and lastly, a group of 
American folk songs and spirituals. 
The four encores, as announced by 
the artist, were: "Lord, I Just Can't 
Keep Prom Cryin'," "I Can't Be Talk- 
ing of Love," "The Cuckoo," and 

The Nightingale." Throughout the 
two-houi concert Miss Addison main-

Adelphia, Men's Honor Society, Is 
Balanced Group of Campus Leaders 

Adelphia, the man's senior honor 
ary society has had a unique back- 
ground. Back in li*14, there were two 
secret organizations on campus, <1«- 
voted mainly to sociability of a 
questionable nature, but nevertheles< 
concerned with any and all college 
problems. These exclusive societies 
were known as Karitad and Kappa 
Beta Phi, the latter being a slight 
contradiction of Phi Beta Kappa, hy- 
pohtetically open to those students 
who had succeeded in failing at least 
one course. A small gold beer bottle 
served as a means of recognition, a 
complete reversal of the traditional 

But both Karitad and Kappa Beta 
Phi had enough prestige to warrant 
recognition as senior honoraries, in 
spite of their anomalies. Of course, 
they were subject to criticism in their 
activities other than promotion of n<- 
dergraduate scholastic excellence, 
much the same as our fraternities 
are today. The qualification of having 
failed a course existed only as good- 
natured humor and did not have a 
pertinent bearing on admissions. 

At that time, M years ago, Presi 
dent Butterfield saw the need for a 
s<rious reorganization, a merging of 
these groups to form a uniq-ie force 
for a better campus life. Thus Adel 
phia was created, its purpose beint." 

by Phil Johnson 

to promulgate worth-while projects 
and to support campus functions. 

Difficulties have arisen with Adel- 
phia as with any self-perpetuating 
oiganization, but its advantages are 
many and its advantages few. It 
provides an opportunity for recogni- 
tion of outstanding service to the 
University, especially during the sen- 
ior year, when campus leaders are 
likely to be in a position of authority. 
However, during the year, it func- 
tions with only a nucleus of person- 
nel, and suffers somewhat from a 
lack of manpower to carry out elab- 
orate programs and to wield a strong 
influence on college sentiment. 

Men in Adelphia are regarded as 
representative and admirable leaders, 
for leadership in the various campus 
activities is its primary requisite. 
Approximately 7 percent of the sen- 
ior class is represented in its member- 
ship. Adelphia has a large number of 
faculty members, most of whom are 
honorary, thus adding prestige an<l 
influence to the organization. 

Throughout the years, Adelphia 
has tried very hard to maintain ba! 
ance among all types of students, 
choosing its members on a basis of 
athletics, scholastic ability, sociability, 
and mainly wholesome leadership. Its

The Little Indian soccer squad 
rolled to two victories last week, 
downing Monson High and Williston 
Academy by identical 2-1 scores to 
rack up the second and third Marcn 
and White triumphs of the season 
Barrows and Wattanayajrorn tallied 
the two goals against Monson, while 
Hoeizel accounted for both goals in 
the Williston game. 

In the Monson affair the U-M 
frosh jumped away to a quick lead 
on Barrow's goal. In the second stan- 
za the Maroon and White moved 
ahead 2-0, Monk Wattanayagorn get- 
ting the goal. In the Williston game, 
Monk, who hails from Thailand, 
played opposite a fellow countryman 
named Ruenseuieshi, star of the Wil- 
liston team. 

Al Hoeizel (we may get shot for 
what we called him last week) tallied 
both goals apainst Williston, to over- 
come a 1-0 lead. His first score came 
in the second period. His second goal, 
which incidentally was his fourth of 
the year, came in the final stanza to 
account for the triumph. 

"Little John" Knapton was out- 
standing in both games for the Little 
Indians. Knapton plays right half- 
back. The schedule called for only on- 
more game, but the frosh 
plan to tackle at least two more op- 
onents— Monson Academy and Water- 
town High on the latter's new field.

the timers stopped all the watches in 
amazement, as the freshman hill-and- 
dalers crushed their Springfield 
counterparts by the near perfect score 
of 16 to 4l>. It there was ever any 
doubt about it, there is none now. 
This man Aldrich is going to be a 
record breaker, and has established 
himself as a definite contender for 
first place honors in the freshman 
New England cross-country meet. 

But near perfect scores don't come 
about by the action of only one man, 
and it was fine running on the part 
of all the rest of the team that re- 
sulted in such a resounding victory. 
It was a sight for sore eyes when flv« 
men in maroon came racing onto the 
field in a group, many yards ahead 
of the first Springfield man. Bob 
Steere, Lee Chisholm, George McMul- 
lin, Pio Angelini, and Hank Knapp 
all crossed the line before a Spring- 
field man had that pleasure. In fact, 
it was only a desperate sprint at the 
finish that gave the first Gymnast 
the edge over Duane Wheeler to pre- 
vent that elusive 1. r > to 50 perfect 

This was a big jump back from the 
sole black spot on the record suf- 
fered a week earlier, and puts the

Shut Out 2-0 
By Hilltoppers 

The Briggsmen dropped a 2-0 de- 
cision to Trinity College here Satur- 
day for their fifth setback of the 
season. The teams played a scoreless 
half before the visiting Hilltoppers 
pushed over two tallies to gain the 

The Redmen had an opportunity to 
gain the lead on a penalty kick in the 
first half, but the shot failed. In each 
of the last two stanzas the Blue and 
Gold pushed across scores, aided by- 
helpful breaks. The Maroon and 
White threatened several times 
throughout the contest but were un- 
able to get the ball by the Trinity 
goalie, and the result was the third 
shutout inflicted upon the Briggsmen. 
The Maroon and White journeys to 
Worcester Saturday to play the Clark 
hooters. Next Wednesday U-M will 
be host to Springfield College in th • 
final home contest of the season. The 
season's finale will take place at Med- 
ford against Tufts on the 11th of 

To date the season has not been a 
successful one due mainly to the in- 
abilitv of the Kedmen to get Hie 
breaks that setup those decisive tal- 
lies. Only in one contest have the 
Briggsmen been able to tally more 
than one goal, and despite the fine 
play of Whitmore, Libucha. Seiferth 
and others, this has been the reason 
for five setbacks in seven starts. The 
Redmen should, however, be able *3 
hold their own with Clark in an ef- 
fort to break back into the win col-

as the delegate representing Massa- 
chusetts. He was injured in an auto- 
mobile accident in Holyoke last week 
,i his way back from West Virginia 
and hospitalized with a back injury 
■is a result of the accider.t. 

According to Gustafson, the them* 
of the conference was "Farming— A 
Way of Life". Five important aims 
of the R.Y.U.S.A. were: food to feed 
a hungry world, facts on which to 
make ,1,-i'isions, fellowship, faith, and 
the future. As part of the conference, 

the delegates were taken to B glass 

factory, a strip-coal mine, and a feed- 
er calf sale. 

At the close >>f the Conference, the 
delegates drove to Washington, D.C. 
where they visited the Capitol, sever- 
al of the Smithsor ian Institute Build- 
ings, the Jefferson and Lincoln Mon- 
uments, and the National Airport. 

On the way home, they stopped at 
Reltsville, Maryland, at the Research 
Station, and viewed some Red Sinda 
.attle and Red Sinda Jersey Crosses, 
both of which are being developed 
for the South. 

Newman Club 

"The path to Newman Clubs is 
naved with good intentions, but dec 
la ration of intention means nothing 
until the member attends meetings." 
The above quotation explains why 
some students never become members 
of the Newman Club; lack of know 
ledge as to the p u rp os e of the Club 
explains the rest. 

In conjunction with the National 
Drive to increase membership of New- 
man Clubs throughout the country.

Women's Glee Club 
Reorganized; Plan 
Future Concert 

This year for the first time since 
World War II, the Women's glee 
club has been reorganized. Since the 
beginning of the war, the women's 
and men's glee clubs have been com- 
bined under the name of the univer- 
sity chorus. Due to the possibility of 
the chorus losing many of its male 
voices, the music department has re- 
established the two glee clubs. 

The women's glee club has as its 
director, Edna Joslin V.l; Joan Walt- 

is manager, and Mary

The division, including four tanks 
and a jeep, assembled at the stables 
and began its trip to the orchard.

<>f the rear tank, took colored pictures 
of the armored column with the Uni- 
versity buildings as a background. 
In the orchard, pictures were taken

The highlight of the demonstration 
occurred when "Pop" Barrett stood 
in a pit especially prepared for him, 
with the tanks rolling over the pit.

Senate Committee 
Leaders Appointed 

by (iin Leccese 

Standing chairmen and committees 
of the new senate were chosen last 
Tuesday, marking the beginning of 
work in the group for the year. The 
chairmen of committees run as fol- 
lows: Infirmary, Bruce Wogan; ath- 
letic, Edward Tyler; Building ami

accomplishing the work of the Student 

Government this year. 

The Senate approved tin- committee

spite a bit of loquacious wranglin - 
from the floor. 

A sad lack of co-operation has 

been the tendency in the Crusade for 
Freedom drive. It is typical of t'.i • 
lackadaisical attitude of college stud- 
ents that they take so lightly a prom- 
ise of faith to the people of Europe 
who look to us for help. Sure 1 can 
hear you now; "So my name's gonna 
win the war?" No, it may not win a 
war, but perhaps if many of you who 
snicker at such a program had gone 
through a war on the battlefield in- 

staml what such a promise of aid, 
sach a personal unified resolve on the 
part of Americans could mean to 
these war torn people. Oh well, you 
can lead a jackass to water, but if 
he went to college, what can you do 
if he feels he's above such petty 

There was a relatively poor show- 
ing at the rally last week. At a time 
when we have just about the best 
team in years, there is no reason why 
students can't devote a few hours on 
Friday night to show the team we ap- 
preciate them. After all, the team it- 
self spends a couple of hours every 
day at practice, while we sit on the 
nice safe standi and yell if they 
make a wrong move. The least we can 
tlo is support them at rallies. Or do 
you think they're playing patty cake 
out there on Saturday afternoons? 
Speaking of spirits, the head cheer- 
leader would greatly welcome a talk 
with the athletic committee in re- 
spect to her group. 

Work is being done on the sugges- 
tion of Adelphia and Isogon to ex- 
tend library hours to eleven. Renie

pa Sigma respectively brought to five 
the number of football victories as 
opposed to one loss for the Kenney

the T.E.P. game was made by a 
spectacular end-around play by Wal- 
ly Kenney. Dave Mile's running with 
Dick Arcicis' and George Whitney's 
defensive play helped bolster the win 
over Kappa Sigma. 

Last Saturday night S.A.E. held 
its Halloween dance with Mr. an 1 
Mrs. Wilson and Mr. and Mrs. Hend- 
rickson as chaperones. Corn stalks 
and pumpkins provided atmosphere

An antenna on top of the radio 
tower would emit signals to the su -

would be picked up by baby receive r«

would operate on an 881 megacycle

of a symposium held Friday evening, 
8:00 p.m., November 8, at the Hillel 

Professor Edwin D. Driver, of the

Both men are well qualified to 
speak on the subject and to answer 
any questions which the audience

the old woman who lived in a shoe, 
"who had so many children she did'nt

her frustrations by applying corporal 
punishment^and* withholding her pro-

Article In Rec. Mag 

Appearing in November's issue of 
lierrention Magazine is an article oa 
hydrology and water recreation by- 
Professor William Vinal, head of re- 
creation training. 

Professor Vinal stressed the im- 
portance of attaining leaders wh i 
would arouse intelligent appreciation 
of water resources. He cited th" 
Quabbin Reservoir, the second largest 
lake in New England, in his explana- 
tion of the construction aspect of wa- 
ter conservation. Despite similar pro 
jects, New England is 28 per cent 
short of normal rainfall. Awareness 
on the part of the public concerning 
wise use of water in recreation was 
also emphasized.

Engineering School . . . 

Continued from /hi,,, 1 

After their general inspection of 
the rmversity, the accreditation com- 
mittee interviewed Registrar Marshall 
O. Lanphear on the University's ad 
mission standards and policies. This 
was followed by an interview with 
Treasurer Robert D. Hawley to de- 
termine the adequacy of the financial 
support for the engineering school. 

The final and most specific criterion 
for granting accreditation rested with 
an appraisal of the caliber of teach- 
ers on the engineering staff, the 
worth of -the school's buildings and 
equipment, and the number of stu 
dents per instructor. 

Other specific factors influencing 
the granting of accreditation were: 
the caliber of students attending the 
engineering school -judged by the 
University's entrance requirements; 
the record of achievements of gradu- 
ates the graduates during the years 
1988 to l'Mo successfully fulfilled this 

In discussing the record of achieve 
ment made by engineering graduates, 
Dean Marston stated that this Uni- 
versity has been turning out engineers 
since its founding in 18«7. Two out 
of ten students who Compriaod th" 
first class to graduates the I'niversity 
Were Civil Engineering majors.

often happens, the temporary job be- 
came a permanent one, so that Pro- 
fessor Otto has remained on the staff 
since 1938. 

His pe d a g ogical career was interup- 
ted however, when he was called to 
active service in 1942. During his 
four years with the army engineers 
he saw service in Australia, New 
Guinea, and the Philippines. Thanks 
to his horse cavalry days, Professor 
Otto enjoyed an officer's rank. His 
release from the army in 1946 was 
the result of the work of school auth- 

A tall, well dressed man with a 
pleasing voice, Professor Otto is a far 
cry from the absent minded professor 
so well known to humour magazines. 
Because of the nature of the work, 
his classes are necessarily small. This 
affords him an opportunity to get to 
know his students well. He is thus 
able to share the dreams and aspira- 
tions of the various members of the 
department. Their work is of primary 
concern to him. 

Interested in bowling and fishing. 
Professor Otto devotes much of his 
leisure to these activities. A true 
sportsman, he spends his summer va- 
cation at his camp in northern Ver- 
mont with his wife and nine year old 
son. Here, isolated from the civilized 
world, he has an opportunity to get 
ir. as much fishing as he desires. A 
true rustic at heart, Professor Otto 
has never regretted renouncing his 
professional status for the jovs of a 
college professor in a small New 
England town.

high scholarship records. Similar re- 
lief programs are in operation in 
Western Germany, Austria, and the 
Far East. 

In Greece the Elmendorfs saw the 
effective installation of many self- 
help projects, the most outstanding 
of' which was one in which the stud- 
ents published their own text-books. 
They typed up stencils, ran off mim- 
eographs, and bound the books by 
themselves. These students have 
showed a tremendous desire to help 
their own causes and thereby lessen 
the relief which they must accept. Can 
any of us imagine not being able to 
take books out of a library at night 
and not being able to buy text-books? 
These things, too, we accept because 
we have never known such adverse 
circumstances. The professors, reali- 
zing the straits in which the students 
are, give up the extra money, which 
would supplement their meager sal 
aries, the profits from the books 
which they publish, and allow the 
students to print the texts. 

Dr. Goldberg summarized the talks 
of Mr. and Mrs. Elmendorf saying 
that we should try to make the Am- 
erican college people realize the dire 
circumstances of their foreign count- 
erparts. If we realize that this is a 
unique effort, by students and for 
students, that the program is non- 
discriminatory — need is the main con- 
sideration — and the need is still 
great. Even if our contribution is 
not great, it is important. The stud- 
ents at U. of M. will do our part —

More Facts Of Sexton Case 
Revealed By Bruce Wogan 

Dr. E. J. Radcliffe, who resigned verbally as infirmary head 
on Thursday, November 2 as a result of an unverified letter in 
a>t week's Collegian was asked to reconsider Friday and did so, 
it was stated Tuesday by Dean Hopkins, Chairman of the Univer- 
sity Health Council. 

The resignation of Dr. Radcliffe led to a front page news 

rtory i" the Daily Hampshire Gazette | 

n Friday and on Tuesday to a front ! | lipof OflVA On 

Mg< Itorj in the Springfield I'nion. 

A letter from Mr. Joseph Sexton, 
father of the student, h;is been re- 
vived by Larry Litwack. The Col- 
legian -at Larry's suggestion — is not 
h< -re reprinting the letter from the 
distraught parent and is giving a 
copy of it to Dean Machmer for the 
judging of its contents. 

"Although the letter supports facts 
of my original letter to the editor," 
Larry said, "I feel that it still does 
not justify the opinion I expressed 
about the facts." 

When asked Monday for the facts 
ning the Sexton case, Dean 
Hopkins explained that those facts 
"are a part of the personal medical 
history of Edward Sexton and can 
not be publicized". 

The following paragraphs were 
taken from the news article in the 
Springfield Union.

tis case, as told to the UNION by

Record Crowd Jams Annual Hort Show; 
Eunice Diamond Chosen Queen Of Show 

There will be a meeting of the 
staff of trris free and responsible 
press tonight at 7:30. 

Last Friday evening the annual Horticulture Show reached 
its climax when Eunice Diamond. '52, was named queen by Presi- 
dent Ralph Van Meter. Her attendants were Judy Sanders, '53, 
and Joan Hartley, '53. Miss Diamond and Miss Sanders were at- 
tendants last year when Barbara Konopka. '52. won the honor. 

Attendance figures this year exceeded those of any other 

year despite Inclement weather. Sta-

The annual Campus Chest drive 
has been in full swing this week col- 
lecting funds for a number of chari- 
ties: World Student Service Fund, 
CARE, Cancer Drive, March of 
Dimes, Crusade for Freedom, United 
Negro Scholarship Fund, and the U. 
of M. Scholarship Fund for Foreign 
Students. Once again, the drive is 
aiming for a top figure of $3,000, of 
$1 per student. Last year the average 
amount contributed by the student in 
donating colleges was only IT cents, 
and here at U of M, just half of the 
$3,000 goal was collected. The Univer- 
sity could earn national distinction if 
the drive resulted in a KM) per cent 
contribution, for this has never been 
accomplished in any other college.

I hear those books are enough to

Reporting Ml plans to extend lib-

Mr. Wood, felt that extending week

From The Editor 

i wnnkl like to make clear to the student body that as editor 
«f thl rolleir an I am completely responsible for the opinion func- 
tio^W^! and that letters to the editor are my responsi- 

^"^I^ref'erence to the letter written by Larry Litwack last week 
let me make it known that I was in ^.^J^^J^t 
thp lPtter First in the Constitution of the I ollegidn tneie is a 
section on Letted To The Editor whkh contains the following 
sta tement • 'letters that contain direct or implied criticism of 
aw Son (rather than policies) shall be printed only after the 
Xrh^s obtained permission from the person, involved The 
fetter previously mentioned did have direct criticism of Dr. Rad- 
c\ iffe and II did not contact him before deciding to publish it Sec- 
ond a student needing blood transfusions may be an emotional 
matter and may give some justification for writing a letter. But 
Sits does" no! Justify my printing a typical campus rumor on med- 

j/-»ol (*S1SGS i 

I am also responsible for the cartoon printed in last weeks 
Collegian on page 6 which was in poor taste. The cartoon was not 
m^euD in the paper on Monday evening, but was inserted at the 
h^st moment by mistake as a filler for space alotted to an adver- 
ttsem^nt which did not arrive. The Collegian policy is not to use 
sex™ a basis for humor. This is not because we are. puritanical, 
but because this type of humor takes great, skill and in the effoit 
to achieve sophistication it is easy to achieve vulganty. 

It has entered my mind, that some of you may after reading 
mv statements come to the conclusion that a remedy for this sit- 
uation 3 be to impose censorship on the Collegian, and I would 
"ike to quote a remark of Professor Musgrave on censorship made 
to the Collegian members last week: "The reason the Colegian 
not censored is that the faculty and administration want to pro- 
vide an opportunity for the students to have the experience of 
free and responsible living." The faculty adviser does not read 
over proofs of the Collegian before it is printed, and has never at- 
tempted to censor the paper in any other way. Remember only a 
responsible student press can be free, and only if we students 
are free to make mistakes can we be responsible. 

Dr Radcliffe has often been a subject of rumors as well as 
news reports in the Collegian. Perhaps the printing of a rumor 
will make clear his, or anyone's, difficulties in overcoming rumors 
or false impressions based on lack of knowledge. In my editor s 
note last week I tried to indicate that I hear many reports but 
rarely is a person willing to write an honest letter and sign his 
name. It is certainly worse to print a rumor than to speak it, but 
the same principles apply to each !

The University's purchase -of the Mutual Life Insurance Company's Li- 
brary was announced this week by Professor Nathan Rewnick, director of 
* libraries. This follows by two months the purchase of the Brooklyn Para- 
mount theatre and office buildings by the University. 

Mutual Life sold the furniture and fixtures to the University for an 
undisclosed amount. However, the library reportedly was built at a cost of 
$250,000 and holds 10,000 volumes.

The Harvard "Lampoon" has never been known as a conservative pub- 
lication-it is usually just a bit on the feelthy side. But the latest issue was 
a parody of itself entitled "Pontoon", and it sank in mid-stream. Police have 
described the abortive effort as "just smut", seized the copies, and filed a 
court complaint. One irate mother of a 'Cliff e dweller' wrote to the Harvard 
"Crimson" complaining that, "It is simply the most vulgar thing I have 
ever seen— worse than anything I have ever read in 'Esquire '. 

The University of Wisconsin has rejected a suggestion by one of its so- 
ciology professors that "supervised student necking" be arranged for the 
school The student council approved the professor's idea of a traditional 
"Lovers' Lane", complete with decorous illumination, but the deans office 
said "no". Neckers will just have to neck in the dark. 

To the Editor: 

In a small Southern town, there once lived an old 
colored man who was known by all the citizenry for 
his sagacity. One day they asked him, "Uncle Mose, 
how come you be so wise?" "Because I'se got good 
judgment", he replied. Then they asked him, "How 
come you have good judgment, Uncle Mose?" His 
answer was, "By poor judgment". 

The errors in judgment which occured in the last 
issue of the Collegian can result in either a worsening 
or an improvement of subsequent issues. It will be 
only too easy for the paper to assume an over-cautious 
policy, and some self-righteous people may think this 
is a good thing. The writer of the ill-timed letter, no 
doubt, thought he was doing the student body a serv- 
ice. He used poor judgment, and it is hoped that he 
has learned from his mistake. However, if the future 
policy of the paper becomes one of intellectual timid- 
ity, if opinions and future news reports are deliberate- 
ly limited to the innocuous and the non-controversial, 
if the paper begins to cater to the conservative and 
reactionary elements on campus, if this happens, then 
far greater harm will be done. 

Many students are now so bound by the pressures 
of authority and group opinion that they are becom- 
ing less than free men. This is not limited to the cam- 
pus but is quite prevalent in our world today. If a 
man makes a mistake, let us uphold his right to commit 
more such errors. The easy thing is to prevent "error" 
by censorship and authority, either explicitly or im- 
plicitly applied. Sure, no one gets hurt after the screws 
are tightened except the truth! Sometimes it is difficult 
to detect the difference between truth and error, but 
if this is made an excuse for mediocre conformity to 
"accepted" truth, tben we become more slaves and 
less free men. 

The stand which the Collegian staff, the student 
body, the faculty, and the administration take on this 
latest matter will indicate whether we deny or affirm 
our faith in Democracy. Will we decide for safe author- 
itarianism or unsafe freedom of thought? That is the 

main issue.

Clare Luce at a recent rally closed her harangue 
on the note . . . that at least her candidate didn't have 
to hand out encyclopedii to be understood. Doubtless 
that is so ... but maybe that would be a good idea! 
Perhaps some well-meaning voters would discover that 
freedom means more than the right to go hungry and 
homeless. Perhaps they would dis- 
cover that communism cannot be con- 
tained by committing conscientious 
citizens to concentration camps. Per-

Dear Editor, 

I understand that the senate is once more form- 
ing committees to investigate and propose remedies 
for the improvement of the present infirmary 
tions on campus. I can't help but wonder if they * ; 
meet with as much success as they did last year whe> 
the Senate undertook a similar project. 

Last December 1949, the Student Senate's Infirm 
ary Investigating Committee submitted a report ,; 
eight suggestions to improve the existing infirmary 
facilities of the University which they found ina<fc. 


The following proposals were ratified by the Stu- 
dent Senate and submitted to the administration ..f the 
University of Massachusetts. 

1. Increased Infirmary appropriations 

2. Increase in personnel 

a. At least two more nurses 

b. One more staff doctor or a consul: r.j 

3. Acquisition of more adequate equipment up: 
the recommendation of the medical staff. 

4. More extensive use of available equipment. 

5. More thorough examinations before diagnwJ 
are made. 

6. Extension of medical service to. include becj] 
and dormitory visits at the discretion of house 

or proctor. 

7. Flexibility of official infirmary sick call hosj 
to meet twenty-four hour demands. 

8. More adequate training of nursing personnel! 
meet the requirements for emergency treatments. 

Very few, if any, of these recommendations anl 
now in evidence at the infirmary at present. 1: 
of an increase in personnel in the last year, the med-l 
cal staff has been decreased by one doctor. There il 
now only one doctor to take care of more than thml 
thousand students. This one doctor is not a residref 
doctor and is called away on many occasions tha| 
leaving the campus without a doctor. If a studs 
should become ill while the doctor is absent, he xniuc| 
wait for his return before he is given a physician 
attention. This situation has already been the cause ail 
serious complications and will continue to do so uri| 

Instead of having increased infirmary » I 
hours to meet twenty-four hour student Actnai 
out-patient is only open six hours daily, from 9:W:I 
11:30 and 1:00 to 5:00. It happens that these are al 
hours when the majority of the students are at 
classes. The infirmary will accept patients after thai 
hours only in cases of emergency. However, wh | 
to make the decision as to whether the case is an CM 
gency if the student is not bleeding to death or if th 
are no other glaring external evidences. A suffice: 
examination is often lacking to make an accurate :| 
agnosis of the case. 

Decisive action has still not been taken to ex:d 
medical services to include house and dormitory v; 
at the discretion of housemothers and proctors, 
matter how sick a student is he usually has to fell 
to the infirmary before he receives medical a 4 

What is the purpose of our Student Senate? WaT 
advantage is their in using time and energy to «rj 
duct investigations and form reports if they are t 
ignored and there is to be no final results from tar 
work? How much longer must this disgraceful 4 
dition of inadequacy exist in our University? The;! 
dent Senate has tried and failed. We have recef 
little satisfaction from our administration. The I 
has come when it is up to the students, for their 
protection, to take some action.

Perhaps they would find that peace 
is not an aggressive propoganda for war. It may be 
that we need politicians tha-; will point beyond the 
smoke of political gymnastics to the fire of truth. 

Sure, smoke comes from fire . . . but can a fire- 
man put out fire by directing his stream of water at 
the smoke? We voters are firemen who have to direct 
our stream of votes at the issuing flames. If we direct 
our power at the smoke the issues will not have been 

Perhaps this is a needle-less way to jab you poten- 
tial and kinetic voters into considering the current 
issues of American politics. The State elections are 
over now but National elections are on the way. If 
the voters do not allow themselves to be swept away. . . 
it will only be because they will have kept the real 
issues in view. 

You have to decide who can best meet the tbreat 
of atomic war. You have to decide who can best meet 
the threat of Hitlerian abridgement of traditional 
rights. You have to decide who can best meet the man- 
ic-depressive temperament of our social economy. . . 
Though the politicians are loose in their propositions 
for better service it is up to us to beware of smoke. . . 
that we will not vote ourselves into the fires of Dachau! 

To the Editor: 

On Sunday a week ago, I received some rep< j 
on the Sexton case from persons who had talked 
Sexton. On the basis of these reports, I wrote a l^j 
that was published in last week's Collegian. In 
letter, I gave the story as I had heard it, and expres* 
the opinion that the Sexton case was a "shockin?' 
ample of the inefficiency of our medical staff." 

After the issue came out, I received a report BJ 
Bruce Wogan, a member of the Health Council. 0i> 
basis of this new information, I concluded that j 
opinion expressed in that letter was wrong, and<j 
the facts were^not complete. As soon as I could jj 
receiving Bruce Wogan's report, I made a brow 
over WMUA at which time I retracted the * 
made in my letter and the previous night's broa* 
over WMUA. 

On Friday, I told a reporter on the Daily B|j 
shire Gazette that "the opinions that aPP* 93 ^?. 
letter about Doctor Radcliffe were not true." and' 
told him that I had already retracted my charges 
admitted my error over WMUA. 

My present opinion on the Sexton case i- 5 
Doctor Radcliffe is completely exonerated of the 
ions I expressed in last week's Collegian. 

It is embarrassing to make a mistake in |* 
I am glad to learn that I did not have all the -^ 
straight. I regret that I formed an opinion or.-* 
ficient facts, even though facts on such matted 
hard to get. 

I should like to publicly apologize to Doctfl 
cliffe for printing rumors that reflected on him 
the Sexton case.

Sunday, fraternity Round 
Robins will oficially begin. As an up- 
perclassman who has seen these af- 
fairs for three years, I would like to 
givi a bit of helpful advice to you 
freshmen, who will soon be subjected 
to the most extensive rushing of your 

| lives. 

In the next weeks and months, you 
kill be deluged by all sorts of people 
trying to prove to you that their re- 
-n'ective houses are the best on cam- 
pus. And, you know, every one cf 
them is right. You see, each house is 
best for the individual involved. You 
freshmen must realize that you do 
not accept a house because of its 
name alone or because of its exterior 
facades and superficial aspects. You 
should try to get into the house that 
best satisfies your own needs and 
desires. In this way, each house is 
the best for the individual who wants 
I what it has to offer. 

Many of you might ask, "What if 
I you can't get into the house of your 
I first choice?" Some have solved this 
problem by taking a second or third 
I choice if the other more desirable 
I ones did not materialize. This prac- 
tice is detrimental to both the house 
and the individual: first, because the 
individual is still aiming for his pri- 
Iniary choice, and second, because a 
(disinterested member is of little val- 
|ue to the house. 

If you can't get into the house of 
I your choice the first time, rather 
I than take another choice, remember 
[the old proverb of "Try, try again". 
|\Yith perseverence, almost anyone 
jean be accepted. There is no reason 
Iwhy an individual's eforts will not 
■be rewarded if he shows enough in- 
terest in the house and the members. 
Interest and ingratiation are two 
■very different things, however. I 
■have seen more cases of persons bein^ 
■disliked and thus rejected because of 
Itheir over-obsequious ways than be- 
leause of their excessive quietness 
that may make them unnoticeable at

Sparse Crowd 
Out for Pre-Game 
Vermont Rally 

by Herb Phillips 

Despite poor weal tin, about 700 
students participated in the third 
rally of the season held last Friday 
night at Bowker Auditorium. 

The rally procession was led by 
the band and drill team. It started 
from Butterfield, marched past 
Greenough, Chadbourne, and Marsh- 
all Hall, and finally stopped at Bow- 

Harvey Segal was the MC. Among 
the added features were: Dean Hop- 
kins, who appeared as Metawampe's 
second cousin, Chief Ungus; the 
University Chorale, which displayed 
its fine musical talent; a skit fea- 
turing Mary Lowery and Frank Sot- 
tile; and the return of two alumni, 
Wally Kallaugher '49 and Joe Dill- 
man '50, who raised the Students' 
spirits immensely. 

Because of the heavy mist which 
pervaded the whole affair, the cam- 
pus bonfire which was to have been 
held immediately after the rally, was

Redmen In Win I Harriers In Romp, 
Over Catamounts Crush Deerfield; 
With 27 -B Score | JV's Lose to Arms 

U-M Home Streak 

Redmen Tackle Gymnasts Next 

Springfield Here For Final U-M Home Gam 

■ ™ — «*i11 nnHofofit.p(] on Alumni Pi, 


None of the three R's: rain, the 
Roaring Catamounts, or their ace 
passer Ralph Kehoe could keep the 
fourth R, Tommy Eck's Redmen, from 
maintaining their unblemished home 
record with a 27-13 victory before a 
small but enthusiastic crowd that 
braved the elements last Saturday. 

The Redmen spotted the visitors 
a first period touchdown when Bod 
Brown climaxed a 34 yard drive by 
scoring from the five, and then pro- 
ceeded to come right back in two 
plays and then go on to triumph. On 
the kickoff following the Vermont 
touchdown Marty Anderson raced 80 
yards to the visitors' eleven yard 
line. On the next play Jack Benoit 
raced off left tackle to score. 

Later in the period long gains by 
Benoit, Howland, and Anderson 
sparked an 88 yard touchdown drive 
by the Maroon and White. Georgie 
Howland spun off left guard for the 
last 28 yards. Andy's conversion made 
it 13-7. 

In the third period Russ Beaumont 
intercepted a Catamount pass and 
raced to the Vermont 20. Benoit car- 
ried for five plays for a score. On 
the succeeding kickoff Bill Howard 
raced all the way to make it UM-20 
Vermont -13. 

Then in the final stanza Doherty 
returned a Green and Gold punt 25 
yards to the Vermont 35. The Red- 
men needed nine plays to push it 
over, Benoit diving into paydirt from 
the one. Smith's kick wound it up 


Redmen 13 7 7—2. 

Vermont 7 6 0—13 

Touchdowns: UM— Benoit (S), How- 
land; V— Brown, Howard. 
Placements: UM— Smith (2), Ander- 
son; V— Atkins. 

Once again the f rosh hill-and-dalers 
displayed their prowess in the run- 
ning business as they toppled Deer- 
field Academy 15 to 48 last Thurs- 
day. Putting his fifth consecutive in- 
dividual victory on the books was 
Harry Aldrich who finished in a tie 
this ..ime with up-and-coming George 
McMullin. Running over an abbrevi- 
ated two-and-one-half mile course to 
cut down to the size of the opposition, 
the frosh nevertheless experienced no 
difficulty in romping by the out- 
classed visitors from up the valley. 

Tied for third were Lee Chisholm 
and Hank Knapp. Pio Angelini and 
Bob Steere finished fifth and sixth, 
and Duane Wheeler, seventh for the 
Redmen, displaced all but two of the 
opposition by finishing ninth. 

With the large number on the team, 
Coach Derby split the squad in two 
and ran the "B" group against Arms 
Academy. Chuck Henry, with the bur- 
den really upon him for the first 
time, pulled through in fine fashion 
to cop the race in a time that beat 
all but the* winning one in the firs 
team's race with Deerfield. In spite 
of the fact that they took that num- 
ber one spot, however, the JV fresh- 
men lost out 37 to 24.

Frosh Defeated 
By Powerful B.C. 

The Little Indians went down to 
their first setback of the season at 
Chestnut Hill last Friday when they 
bowed to the unbeaten Boston College 
Frosh 13-6. The Eaglets, conquerors 
of Dartmouth, Brandeis and Brown 
were h»>avy favorites over the frosh 
from the obscure college in Amherst. 
The issue was in doubt, however, un- 
til the final gun when the very par- 
tisan crowd of 3000 breathed a sigh 
of relief with a close 13-6 win. 

The setback suffered at the hands ( 
of the powerful Boston juggernaut t 
adds more prestige to the rising grid 
fortunes of the Maron and White 
than any 63-0 win over Leicester 

The first half featured a brilliant 
kicking duel between the Little In- 
dian's Charlie St Paul and B. C.'s, 
John Irwin, both of whom consistently j 
punted for 40-60 yards to keep their 
active teams out of trouble. The 
I Mass frosh confined their offensive 
to the ground, but couldn't penetrate 
the bis B. C. forward wall. 

The Eagles were also unable to 
gain much, but in the waning minutes 
of the half a Rex pass was intercept- 
ed by the Bftgieti and this set up 
their first touchdown. Former All- 
Scholastic Dan Dnggsn accounted for 
the next 4S yards practically single- 
handedly. Two passes to him ate up 
30 and 12 yards and two runs netted 
four more yards, the second of which 
resulted in the -fore. Zotti converted. 
On the second half kickoff Zotti, 
wh,. ired f©T fame with the va:'- 

Utd will make Bostonians for- 
get Joe Diminick ever existed, raced 
80 yards to the I'M in. Two plays 
later he scored, Mereadante ran the 
following kickoff back to the I'M 41

The grid season rolls right along 
towards its climax with close races 
in all three leagues. Berkshire B 
continues undefeated with Hamlin B 
and Chadbourne D right behind. Mid- 
dlesex A is undefeated in League B 
with Butterfield G running second. 
Phi Sig is the only unbeaten frater- 
nity team while Sig Ep has lost only 
once, that to the Phi Sig squad in 
the season's opener. 

Berkshire B's 13-0 triumph over 
Hamlin B has been the deciding game 
to date in League C. It accounts for 
the only loss suffered by the Hamlin 
House club. Chadbourne D with five 
wins in six starts also poses a threat 
for the C-League crown. 

In League B Berkshire A has a 
5-1 record but is forced to take a 
backseat to second place Butterfield 
C (6-1) and undefeated league-leader 
Middlesex A. This league presents 
the closest race with five possible 
championship outfits. 

The fraternities are in the lime- 
light tonight with Alpha Gam tack- 
ling TEP at 7:00 at which time 
P.rooks B will meet Middlesex B. It's 
AHPi against league-leading Phi Sig 
and SAE against Theta Chi at 7:45. 
Tri Zeta will seek its first win when 
it opposes Kappa Sig at 8:30. Kappa 
I Sig also has failed to win so one 
1 team will break into the victory 
column. Sig Ep and QTV will also 
j clash. 

In an exhibition earlier this wees 
SAE taking the part of Notre Dame 
fell before the Cleveland Browns of 
the professional league by a 56-32 
count. The "Browns" boasted the serv- 
[ces <>f Fred Allen (famous comed- 
iai ), "Bar* Winters (brother of ref- 
eree Gtti Winters). Eddie Labaron 
(famous collegiate star). "Bob" Tor- 
res (Washington Senators). "Jim"

the object of our athletic policy should 
be to win the Conference titles in as

Last Saturday Springfield w,

The Rams held a victory over th<

R. I. State game was played away 
from home, and a look at the records 
draws forth the statement that wht: : 
the Redmen play has as much to d 
with the outcome as who they play. 
Maybe its just a scoring jinx that 
keeps the Eckmen from triumphs: 
away from home, because in two 4 
their three away conutests they oat- 
played the opposition, and agair,- 
one of New England's strongest sma 
college teams, Williams, the MM

At any rate, the undefeated hois

Clark Blanked 
By Booters 6-0 

A superior Redmen soccer team, 
displaying a fine passing attack, 
downed a rough Clark eleven 6-0 at 
Worcester last Saturday. The Briggs- 
mt n jumped off to a quick 4-0 lead 
in the first stanza, and powered their 
w ay to two more tallies in the second 

Early in the game Mel Tucker, in- 
side-left, took a pass from Dave Hun- 
ter and put it cleanly into the oppo- 
site corner of the Clark goal to start 
the scoring parade. Two minutes la- 
ter Co-Captain Chet Libucha tallied 
from in front of the goal. No sooner 
had Clark kicked off than the Red- 
nien took the ball away and scored 
again, Tucker's shot being deflected 
into the nets. 

The fourth goal came when Fred 
Seiferth took a kickout from the side- 
lines and blasted it at the goal where 
the slippery ball skidded through for 
the score. The Maroon and White 
dominated play in the second quarter 
but failed to score. Then in period 
three Chet Libucha took a long kick 
from center-half Dick Howland, and 
headed the ball back over his head 
into the goal. Minutes later Frank 
Dickinson, inside right, carried in for 
the final tally. 

One of the Best I'M Cam.* 
The game was one of the best 
played by the Briggsmen this year. 
There was cohesion in the front line 
and the long kicks of the backfield 
were exceptional considering the wet 
grounds. The best Clark scoring op- 
portunity came in the first period 
when Decastro let loose with a wicked 
shot that was nullified when one of 
his own men touched the ball with his 
hands before it entered the net. 

Dick Howland of the Redmen 
played his best game of the year 
while Tom Emblar and Bill Whitmore 
stood out for our warriors. The for- 
ward line sparkled, its teamwork be- 
ing a decided factor in the outcome. 
The overall spirit and fight of the 
Briggsmen who have had more than 
their share of bad breaks this sea- 
son, paid off with the clean triumph. 
Yesterday the Redmen played at 
Springfield College. Saturday they 
wind up the season at Medford 
against Tufts, determined to triumph, 
and still a high-spirited club despite 
the season's record.

Prof. Robertson 
To Address ACSA 
In Pitt, Nov. 17-18 

l'rofesor James Robertson <>f the 
Landscape Architecture department 
will attend the regional conference of 
the Association of Collegiate Schools 
of Architecture in Pittsburgh on No- 
vember 17 and 18. The conference 
deals with architectural education 
and is held by various colleges where 
architecture is taught as a profes- 
sional subject. 

During the past year, Professor 
Robertson, while working for a Mas- 
ter of Architecture degree at Carne- 
gie Institute of Technology, did his 
major work in the field of graphic 
expression in architectural training. 
He helped the Carnegie department 
to set up a new approach to the field 
of architectural education; the work 
is being further elaborated and will 
be presented to the Association's con- 
ference in the spring. Professor Rob- 
ertson will conduct a symposium of 
the subject during the conference 
when the work will be presented and 
discussed before a regional group for 
further testing by schools that may- 
be interested. 

During the visit to Carnegie Tech, 
Professor Robertson will also deliver 
a lecture on the influences from the

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

S.A.E. topped off the annual Alum- 
ni Week-end by combining the Cor- 
poration and Minerva Club meetings 
on Saturday afternoon of the U. of 
M. victory over Vermont. The Min- 
erva Club is an organization of the 
mothers, wives, and sweethearts of 
S.A.E. ; this group provides the vari- 
ous niceties which make a frat house 
like home. These meetings were fol- 
lowed by a delicious buffet supper. 

Despite the inclement weather, the 
display representing an Indian vil- 
lage of six tepees preparing for a 
feast of catamounts roasting on 
spits, and illuminated by colored 
lights, stayed intact. 

The evening's festivities on Satur- 
day night were highlighted by the 
scintillating renditions of Nunzy 
Maio's combo. Many alumni were 
among the joyous crowd that attended 
the dance. Dr. and Mrs. Albert Goss, 
Mr. Charles Perrin and Miss Betty 
Shumway were the congenial chaper- 

To avoid congestion and to keep 
within the capacity of the house for 
a party, Wes Kelley, the social chair- 
man, inaugurated a rotation system 
whereby each couple danced on the 
main floor, and then, if they wished, 
were provided with seats in the base- 
ment dining hall for refreshments, 
thus providing a safe and sane party 
for all. 

Tau Epsilon Phi 

Despite inclement weather, Tau Ep 
silon Phi's Homecoming Weekend ce- 
lebration reached a high note in fra- 
ternity social events. In conjunction 
with Homecoming, extensive decora- 
tions were added to celebrate our 
40th anniversary as a national fra- 
ternity. Outdoors, a blue canopy was 
extended from the street to the house; 
a sign was placed over North Pleas- 
ant Street; and a candle-studded 
birthday cake was placed on the roof. 
Our indoor theme was that of a hotel, 
complete with palms and bellboys. 
A cocktail hour after the game was 
followed by a dance, a skit, and songs 
by the TEPTET. 

A large number of alumni from 
all parts of the state, ranging from 
the first member to a large group of 
last year's graduates, attended the 
weekend events. A delegation from 
the University of Vermont spent the 
weekend at the fraternity house also. 

In sports last week, TEP defeated 
Tri-Zeta on an end run by half-back 
Pinky Barr. Excelling in defensive 
play was right end Jack Brody, who 
played the entire game not knowing 
he had a broken wrist. 

Tau Epsilon Phi extends congratu- 
lations to Brother Gene Isenberg, re- 
cently elected to Phi Kappa Phi. 

Sigma Delta Tau

Lambda Chi Alpha 

Lambda Chi played host to an ag- 
gregation of local juvenile delinquents 
Halloween night after one of them 
tossed a rock through a large 
window. Strong-armed tactics were 
used by two of our erstwhile members 
in order to wrest a reimbursement 
from the "Dukes". 

The Lambda Chi "Lamb Chops" 
edged S.A.E. last Tuesday night, but 
they lost to Phi Sig, 32-15. Their 
record is now 5 and 2.

peared to be in good spirits.

Hordes flocked to Sig Ep for the 
Fiesta party Saturday night. The wall 
bulged with alumni, some from classes 
as far back as 1908. A good get-to- 
gether such as this makes Homecom- 
ing Weekend really worthwhile. Chap- 
erones for the affair were the Alvi- 
ani's and McCartney's. 

Hal Markarian has recently been 
pledged to the house. He is the first 
Sig Ep pledge this year.

Continued from page 1 
this group the Secretary of the state, 
Edward Cronin, was present. 

The events for the day were car- 
ried throujrh as scheduled, although 
the football game did r.ot have the 
audience which it would have had 
under different conditions. 

The legislators arrived throughout 
Saturday morning and were given 
complimentary tickets to the football 
game. Collegians and other University 
publications were also distributed. 

A dinner at the Draper was served 
to the legislators at noon. After dinner 
they had the choice of visiting the 
Hort show or attending the game. A 
tour of the campus and its buildings 
was also conducted to acquaint the 
legislator! with our campus. 

Alumni members made their ap- 
pearances throughout the campus 
over the entire week-end and some 
are still wandering around. Spirits 
were dampened considerably by the 
weather but they were far from lack- 
ing. Some brave alumni members even 
ventured through the mud of Alumni 
Field to witness the defeat of the 
University of Vermont. 

Saturday night was featured by 
parties at all the fraternity houses 
on campus.

The Roister Doister performances of "Miranda" scheduled 
for 8:15 this Friday and Saturday evenings in Bowker will be the 
first University dramatic production to go 00 ttftgt since the ac- 
quisition of a permanent box office by the Roister Doisters. 

Popular with many widespread rammer theater groups, "Mir- 
anda" is | comedy which hinges just a bit on the imaginative 

■Id* and promises much light-hearted 
MMUmmnt The imping of the play 
is provided by Mm mysterious nature 
of | y young invalid brought 
■OHM by her doctor, Paul Martin. 

The setting will be a stylized type, 
which differentiates between stage 
rooms by means of furniture and door 
frames alone. 

The cast for the play includes such 
veteran Roister Doisters as Sylvia 
Rafferty and Herb Abrams, while 
many newcomers are also rep resented. 
The title role is being played by- 
Nancy Galas and the doctor by Dick 
Martinez. Hettina Hollis will be the 
doctor's wife, Ann, and Nancy Phil- 
lips, the maid. Rill Massidda and Jean 
Parker will be the chauffeur ami 
nurse respectively. 

The Roister Hoister box office, lo- 
cated in one of the former coat room-; 
at Stockbridge Hall, is expected to 
facilitate all ticket sales in the fu- 
ture. It has been felt far some time 
that counter space- in the C-Store was 
far from adequate for this purpose. 
The Idea for a permanent box office 
found expression at a recent Academ- 
ic Activities Hoard meeting, and the 
remodeling in Stockbridge Hall was 
the direct result. 

Tickets will be available at the 
usual prices and may be reserved by 
calling Amherst 900 or by calling 
at the box office.

duction "Miranda" that will be presented Friday and Saturday night.

In Person or In Spirit 

The prompt action which the Administration took this week 
on the request of student representative Bill Less, President of 
the Senate, is worthy of commendation. The problem of how the 
students could get to the Tufts game at Boston without cutting 
classes and in time to cheer our team onto the field without en- 
dangering their lives speeding along the road to Boston was pre- 
sented before Deans Machmer and Hopkins, and Assistant Regis- 
trar Cadigan. These three persons immediately agreed to cancel 
all Saturday classes after 10:00 a.m. 

There will be no attempt to check you in at the gate, no one 
is forcing you to attend our last game of the season. Up to this 
time, you have been asked to show school spirit by coming out 
for the rallies and dropping over for the Saturday games when 
they are on home territory. Now, it is time to show that you can 
physically appear at an outside game, not merely cheer from Am- 
herst. It is ninety miles from here to Boston, it is doubtful that 
the team or the spectators in Boston could hear your verbal sup- 
port. It is up to every one of you to decide if you will be there in 
person or just in spirit. After all, did you ever see a football game 
won by eight spirits instead of eight players? 

Your team, your band, and your administration is right up 
there giving sure tire support. How about you? 

To Repeat 

In an editorial printed in the issue of September 28 some of 
the policies of the COLLEGIAN for this semester were outlined 
under the heading of Better Publicity. One sentence in it might 
bear repeating: "The COLLEGIAN has limited funds to spend 
for paper and printing costs, and cannot possibly publish every 
article which is submitted to the office even though that article 
may be of importance to persons or groups on campus." 

Remember The Needy 

The incomplete returns of the Campus Chest Drive and the 
subsequent extension of the drive for another week seem to point 
rather obviously to the fact that despite the excellent work done 
by the committee, the students have not backed the drive com- 
pletely at this point. It is also conclusive, that the men's dormi- 
tories have placed last in total amounts collected. 

Is this because it is more difficult to collect money in a large 
group such as a dormitory than it is in a fraternity? If so, then 
how is it that the women's dorms have managed to come through 
with a substantial percentage? Is it because men in general do not 
back drives of this type? If so, then why is it that the fraternities 
seem to have come through with excellent contributions? 

Perhaps, the men's dormitories have just been a little slow 
in collecting the money and that this Nov. 18th will show them 
right up there with the other 100' < total groups. This latter rea- 
son is certainly the most feasible and for the sake of the final 
Campus Chest total and the dormitories' own prestige, let us hope 
that this will prove correct. 

An Overall Picture 

The present display of student interest in the nature and 
functions of the University's infirmary is not something new on 
this campus or on any campus or localized community. It is well 
known that there is always a close race between eating facilities 
and medical facilities as to which can be the best target for the 
most rumors tho majority of the time. 

In regard to this problem it is evident that the best service 
the COLLEGIAN can give the campus is to gather reliable facts 
and present them in an unbiased manner. 

All the problems of an infirmary are much more complicated 
than any student newspaper can settle. Expert information is 
needed on many questions. But there are some portions of this 
job that we hope can be done by our student press. We can pre- 
sent the opinions of well-qualified persons. We can report the pro- 
posals of committees. Thus, we hope to give the student body an 
overall picture of the infirmary situation. The article printed 
elsewhere on this page is a start towards this goal. 

- Letters to the Editor - 

Dear Editor: 

The members of Isogon and Adelphia would like 
to extend their thanks to the many people who helped 
to make the float rally a success. Thanks are due not 
only to all the participants from the dorms, sororities, 
and fraternities who had their floats lined up on time 
and to the Hand and Drill Team who lent spirit to the 
parade, but also to those who gave equipment and 
.services necessary for the smooth functioning of the 
affair. Most especially, we would like to thank Mr. 
Maclver, Mr. McCartney, and Mr. Zaitz for acting as 
judges; Mi-. Ityan for donating the prizes; Mr. Ran- 
dolph for the use of campus trucks; Mr. Kauffman 
for the use of floodlights; the R.O.T.C. for the use 
of the public address system; Alpha Gam for the use 
of its wagon in cleaning up the town; and Ted Tyler 
for his invaluable assistance throughout the evening. 

The fine spirit of contributing organizations was 
shown by the enthusiasm of the crowd and the high 
quality of the floats entered. The competition was keen 
and judging difficult. Congratulations go to the winners, 
Thatcher Hall and Lambda Chi. 
Most sincerely, 

The members of Isogon and Adelphia 


by Dick Andrews 

I was talking to a friend the other day ar.d during 
the conversation he said, "You'll have to meet Joe — 
he's my roommate." 

"What sort of a fellow is this Joe?", I asked. 

"Oh, he's an average guy." That was his answer. 

So I started to think about the "average" man. 
As the popular concepts came to mind, I tried to find 
out if they would fit this man whom I was to meet. 
The conversation went as follows: 

(Thinking of the Advertisers' John Doe:) "Is he 
middle-aged? Does he look well-fed, wear a business 
suit all the time; carry a brief-case? Does he wear a 
big grin 'cause he's just bought a new Ford? Is he 
concerned about his T-zone?" 

"Ya tryin' to be funny?" was the only reply I got. 

(Thinking of the Hollywood producer's model 
mortal:) "Is he young and good looking? Does he own 
a convertible and dress like a man in, Esquire? Does 
he spend most of his evenings in night clubs? Is he 
a good dancer? Does he get engaged to a prize-beauty 
after two dates?" 

"Who you trying to kid? He ain't like that." (I 
was off the track again.) 

(Recalling the radio executives' average man:) 
"Does he like love-ballads, condensed news, quiz shows, 
and detective stories? That is, is he chronically erotic, 
does he classify his ignorance, and does he get a thrill 
out of honfocide cases?" 

"Let's not make it complicated. He's just an aver- 
age guy, I tell you!" (I felt a little dismayed at this 
point, but I kept on.) 

(Recollecting the politician's Everyman:) "Is he 
irrational and emotionally excitable? Does his spine 
tingle when he hears the words, 'free enterprise', 
'American way of life'? Does he get mad when he 
hears, "long road of socialism', 'planned economy', or 
'government waste' mentioned?" 

"I never seen him." (My friend was showing signs 
of impatience.) 

(Trying the government's concept of the medial 
homo sapien:) "Well," I said, "is he a genius in tax 
computation ? Can he read the Congressional Record 
like the Reader's Digest? Has he had 10 years of law 
school ? And does he suffer from claustrophobia and 
bright lights; does he like long corridors, alphabetical 
directories; does he enjoy sitting on oak benches for 
hours? Does he hate Communists?" 

"He never told me. But what's this leading up 
to?" (My friend was now getting fidgety.) 

(I made -one last attempt using the scientist's con- 
c< pt of the standard male:) "Is he an organic complex 
motivated by social norms? Is he a product of the dy- 
namic interplay of hereditary and environmental fac- 
tors? Is he an intergrated societal creature who re- 
sponds to internal and external stimuli through an 
inter-related neuro-muscular system ?" 

"I'd of never mentioned the guy if I thought it 
would lead to all this! Look, he's just like you or I — 
just an average, ordinary fellow!" There was a look of 
pity and disgust on his face as he left. I'll leave it up to 
you. Just how would you describe the "average man"? 

Adventures of an Infirmary Budget 
or "Who do you see Next?" 

Leo A. Cohen 

Editor's Note: This is the first in a series of orttefa 
tltnmyh which the COLLEGIAS plans to acquaii • 
renders with a better unilerstamliny of the n 
larilities OH this rumpus. 

Since Convocation Day on September 21 up • 
November 11, one doctor and one nurse on the l\j 
campus have treated 1,475 patients, excluding treat. 
ment given the football team, and including l*i; |^ 

One doctor and one nurse for more than 8,600 .»■;-. 
dents is said to be inadequate. Many students want a 
larger infirmary staff. 

But if you think demands for a more adequate in- 
firmary can be met with immediate action — you', 

You have probably seen a child trailing its mother 
on a shopping tour exclaiming, "Mama, buy me on« 
of those!" 

The University is not our mother, and we are g 
longer children. Before we can consider the adequacy 
of any service on this campus we should be armed 
with an understanding of how adequacy is achieved at 
a State University. 

In all fairness, we have no light to demand any. 
thing from our University until we realize what getting 
something for the University involves. 

For illustration purposes, let us say that Dr. Ra<j. 
cliffe, as Director of Student Health, decides that for 
the next fiscal year the University needs something 
simple — say, a new caduceus. 

In his proposed capital outlay budget for the 
year he would include: "One new, M-l Caduceus." 

Dr. Radcliffe sends his budget to Treasurer Haw- 
ley. Treasurer Hawley inserts the caduceus into his 
formal, organized budget, which, when completed in- 
cludes all the proposed expenditures for the university. 

The budget from Treasurer Hawley is dropped 
on President Van Meter's desk. President Van Meter. 
and his appointed committee for the consideration of 
the proposed budget, review each item. 

If doubt arise about the need for a new caduceus: 
if someone asks, "Whatever became of the old what-s- 
it they were using?" Dr. Radcliffe, as author of the 
request, is called into the consultation. 

When Dr. Van Meter, and committee, have finished 
working over the budget it is presented to the Board 
of Trustees. The Board as a whole, and in units if 
standing committees, review each item. 

When the Board of Trustees passes the budget 
it is sent to the State Budget Commissioner in Boston. 
Another series of conferences. 

By this time the budget is only half way in its 
travels; yet, it is already well worn, red-lined, tMt 
noted, and dog eared. 

Why all the fuss over a measly old eadueeu 
ing (wholesale) maybe $5 — at the outside $10. If the 
good doctor wants a new caduceus, and we th< 
dents demand that he have one, why not just gi\ 

Treasurer Hawley explained it to me in I fee 

"The citizen-taxpayers of the state of Massachu- 
setts pay for everything the University buys for the 
University. The State Legislature is justifiably very 
cautious about how it spends the taxpayer's money. 

In addition, the State has only so much to 
and ways to spend it are usually far in excess of that 

In short, the state legislature must decide I 
people of Massachusetts which is closer to the we- 
fare of the commonwealth: Dr. Radcliffe's new cadu- 
ceus or a new lampost for South Kidney Street. The 
residents of South Kidney Street probably feel a 
ing need for that new lampost. They may think a 
caduceus is just so much brick-a-brack. 

When the budget is completed by the State Budge: 
Commissioner it is forward to the governor of Mm** 
chusetts who is president of the Board of Trustett 
The budget now becomes part of the governors pro- 
posed budget to the legislature for the whole state 
during the fiscal year, which will begin on July 1. 

The governor's budget is referred to the W ay-- 
and Means Committee by the Legislature on January 
1. Dr. Van Meter, Treasurer Hawley, and Secretary 
Burke, appear for conferences. 

A year has passed since Dr. Radcliffe decided hi

In Person or In Spirit 

The prompt action which the Administration took this week 
on the request of student representative Bill Less, President of 
the Senate, is worthy of commendation. The problem of how the 
students could get to the Tufts game at Boston without cutting 
classes and in time to cheer our team onto the field without en- 
dangering their lives speeding along the road to Boston was pre- 
sented before Deans Machmer and Hopkins, and Assistant Regis- 
trar Cadigan. These three persons immediately agreed to cancel 
all Saturday classes after 10:00 a.m. 

There will be no attempt to check you in at the gate, no one 
is forcing you to attend our last game of the season. Up to this 
time, you have been asked to show school spirit by coming out 
for the rallies and dropping over for the Saturday games when 
they are on home territory. Now, it is time to show that you can 
physically appear at an outside game, not merely cheer from Am- 
herst. It is ninety miles from here to Boston, it is doubtful that 
the team or the spectators in Boston could hear your verbal sup- 
port. It is up to every one of you to decide if you will be there in 
person or just in spirit. After all, did you ever see a football game 
won by eight spirits instead of eight players? 

Your team, your band, and your administration is right up 
there giving sure fire support. How about you? 

To Repeat 

In an editorial printed in the issue of September 28 some of 
the policies of the COLLEGIAN for this semester were outlined 
under the heading of Better Publicity. One sentence in it might 
bear repeating: "The COLLEGIAN has limited funds to spend 
for paper and printing costs, and cannot possibly publish every 
article which is submitted to the office even though that article 
may be of importance to persons or groups on campus." 

Remember The Needy 

The incomplete returns of the Campus Chest Drive and the 
subsequent extension of the drive for another week seem to point 
rather obviously to the fact that despite the excellent work done 
by the committee, the students have not backed the drive com- 
pletely at this point. It is also conclusive, that the men's dormi- 
tories have placed last in total amounts collected. 

Is this because it is more difficult to collect money in a large 
group such as a dormitory than it is in a fraternity-? If so, then 
how is it that the women's dorms have managed to come through 
with a substantial percentage? Is it because men in general do not 
back drives of this type? If so, then why is it that the fraternities 
seem to have come through with excellent contributions? 

Perhaps, the men's dormitories have just been a little slow- 
in collecting the money and that this Nov. 18th will show them 
right up there with the other 100^- total groups. This latter rea- 
son is certainly the most feasible and for the sake of the final 
Campus Chest total and the dormitories' own prestige, let us hope 
that this will prove correct. 

An Overall Picture 

The present display of student interest in the nature and 
functions of the University's infirmary is not something new on 
this campus or on any campus or localized community. It is well 
known that there is always a close race between eating facilities 
and medical facilities as to which can be the best target for the 
most rumors the majority of the time. 

In regard to this problem it is evident that the best service 
the COLLEGIAN can give the campus is to gather reliable facts 
and present them in an unbiased manner. 

All the problems of an infirmary are much more complicated 
than any student newspaper can settle. Expert information is 
needed on many questions. But there are some portions of this 
job that we hope can be done by our student press. We can pre- 
sent the opinions of well-qualified persons. We can report the pro- 
posals of committees. Thus, we hope to give the student body an 
overall picture of the infirmary situation. The article printed 
elsewhere on this page is a start towards this goal. 

- Letters to the Editor - 

Dear Editor: 

The members of Isogon and Adelphia would like 
to extend their thanks to the many people who helped 
to make the float rally a success. Thanks are due not 
only to all the participants from the dorms, sororities, 
and fraternities who had their floats lined up on time 
and to the Band and Drill Team who lent spirit to the 
parade, but also to those who gave equipment and 
services necessary for the smooth functioning of the 
affair. Most especially, we would like to thank Mr. 
Maclver, Mr. McCartney, and Mr. Zaitz for acting as 
judges; Mr. Ryan for donating the prizes; Mr. Ran- 
dolph for the use of campus trucks; Mr. Kauffman 
for the use of floodlights; the R.O.T.C. for the use 
of the public address system; Alpha Gam for the use 
of its wagon in cleaning up the town; and Ted Tyler 
for his invaluable assistance throughout the evening. 

The fine spirit of contributing organizations was 
shown by the enthusiasm of the crowd and the high 
quality of the floats entered. The competition was keen 
and judging difficult. Congratulations go to the winners, 
Thatcher Hall and Lambda Chi. 
Most sincerely, 

The members of Isogon and Adelphia 


by Dick Andrews 

I was talking to a friend the other day and during 
the conversation he said, "You'll have to meet Joe — 
he's my roommate." 

"What sort of a fellow is this Joe?", I asked. 

"Oh, he's an average guy." That was his answer. 

So I started to think about the "average" man. 
As the popular concepts came to mind, I tried to find 
out if they would fit this man whom I was to meet. 
The conversation went as follows: 

(Thinking of the Advertisers' John Doe:) "Is he 
middle-aged? Does he look well-fed, wear a business 
suit all the time; carry a brief-case? Does he wear a 
big grin 'cause he's just bought a new Ford? Is he 
concerned about his T-zone?" 

"Ya tryin' to be funny?" was the only reply I got. 

(Thinking of the Hollywood producer's model 
mortal:) "Is he young and good looking? Does he own 
a convertible and dress like a man in Esquire? Does 
he spend most of his evenings in night clubs? Is he 
a good dancer? Does he get engaged to a prize-beauty 
after two dates?" 

"Who you trying to kid? He ain't like that." (I 
was off the track again.) 

(Recalling the radio executives' average man:) 
"Does he like love-ballads, condensed news, quiz shows, 
and detective stories? That is, is he chronically erotic, 
does he classify his ignorance, and does he get a thrill 
out of honKocide cases?" 

"Let's not make it complicated. He's just an aver- 
age guy, I tell you!" (I felt a little dismayed at this 
point, but I kept on.) 

(Recollecting the politician's Everyman:) "Is he 
irrational and emotionally excitable? Does his spine 
tingle when he hears the words, 'free enterprise', 
'American way of life'? Does he get mad when he 
hears, "long road of socialism', 'planned economy', or 
'government waste' mentioned?" 

"I never seen him." (My friend was showing signs 
of impatience.) 

(Trying the government's concept of the medial 
homo sapien:) "Well," I said, "is he a genius in tax 
computation? Can he read the Congressional Record 
like the Reader's Digest? Has he had 10 years of law 
school? And does he suffer from claustrophobia and 
bright lights; does he like long corridors, alphabetical 
directories; does he enjoy sitting on oak benches for 
hours? Does he hate Communists?" 

"He never told me. But what's this leading up 
to?" (My friend was now getting fidgety.) 

(I made -one last attempt using the scientist's con- 
cept of the standard male:) "Is he an organic complex 
motivated by social norms ? Is he a product of the dy- 
namic interplay of hereditary and environmental fac- 
tors? Is he an intergrated societal creature who re- 
sponds to internal and external stimuli through an 
inter-related neuro-muscular system?" 

"I'd of never mentioned the guy if I thought it 
would lead to all this! Look, he's just like you or I — 
just an average, ordinary fellow!" There was a look of 
pity and disgust on his face as he left. I'll leave it up to 
you. Just how would you describe the "average man"? 

Adventures of an Infirmary Budget 
or "Who do you see Next?" 

Leo A. Cohen 

Editor's Note: This is the first in a series of article 
through which the COLLEGIAN plans to acquui, t „.,, 
readers with a better understanding if tin meditd 
facilities on tliis campus. 

Since Convocation Day on September 21 up ^ 
November 11, one doctor and one nurse on the I'M 
campus have treated 1,475 patients, excluding treat- 
ment given the football team, and including 9ii bed 

One doctor and one nurse for more than 3,500 sty. 
dents is said to be inadequate. Many students want a 
larger infirmary staff. 

But if you think demands for a more adequate in- 
firmary can be met with immediate action — you're not 

You have probably seen a child trailing its mother 
on a shopping tour exclaiming, "Mama, buy me one 
of those!" 

The University is not our mother, and we are no 
longer children. Before we can consider the adequacy 
of any service on this campus we should be armed 
with an understanding of how adequacy is achieved at 
a State University. 

In all fairness, we have no right to demand any- 
thing from our University until we realize what getting 
something for the University involves. 

For illustration purposes, let us say that Dr. Raj. 
cliffe, as Director of Student Health, decides that for 
the next fiscal year the University needs something 
simple — say, a new caduceus. 

In his proposed capital outlay budget for the 
year he would include: "One new, M-l Caduceus." 

Dr. Radcliffe sends his budget to Treasurer Haw- 
ley. Treasurer Hawley inserts the caduceus into his 
formal, organized budget, which, when completed in- 
cludes all the proposed expenditures for the university. 

The budget from Treasurer Hawley is dropped 
on President Van Meter's desk. President Van Meter, 
and his appointed committee for the consideration of 
the proposed budget, review each item. 

If doubt arise about the need for a new caduceus: 
if someone asks, "Whatever became of the old what-g- 
it they were using?" Dr. Radcliffe, as author of the 
request, is called into the consultation. 

When Dr. Van Meter, and committee, have finished 
working over the budget it is presented to the Board 
of Trustees. The Board as a whole, and in units of 
standing committees, review each item. 

When the Board of Trustees passes the budget 
it is sent to the State Budget Commissioner in Boston. 
Another series of conferences. 

By this time the budget is only half way in iti 
travels; yet, it is already well worn, red-lined, foot- 
noted, and dog eared. 

Why all the fuss over a measly old caduceu 
ing (wholesale) maybe $5 — at the outside $10. If the 
good doctor wants a new caduceus, and we the .-tu- 
dents demand that he have one, why not just give it to 

Treasurer Hawley explained it to me in ;i fee 

"The citizen-taxpayers of the state of Massachu- 
setts pay for everything the University buys for the 
University. The State Legislature is justifiably very 
cautious about how it spends the taxpayer's money. 

In addition, the State has only so much to spend 
and ways to spend it are usually far in excess of that 

In short, the state legislature must decide for the 
people of Massachusetts which is closer to th> 
fare of the commonwealth: Dr. Radcliffe's new cadu- 
ceus or a new lam post for South Kidney Street. The 
residents of South Kidney Street probably feel a pil- 
ing need for that new lampost. They may think a 
caduceus is just so much brick-a-brack. 

When the budget is completed by the State Budget 
Commissioner it is forward to the governor of Mm* 
chusetts who is president of the Board of Trustees. 
The budget now becomes part of the governors pro- 
posed budget to the legislature for the whole state 
during the fiscal year, which will begin on July L 

The governor's budget is referred to the W& 
and Means Committee by the Legislature on January 
1. Dr. Van Meter, Treasurer Hawley, and Secretary 
Burke, appear for conferences. 

A year has passed since Dr. Radcliffe decided he

Redmen Lose 26-0 j 
To Springfield; 
Only Home Defeat 

The Springfield Gymnasts spark- 
ling afield with a fast breaking single 
wing offense pummeled a surprised 
Massachusetts eleven 26-0 at Alumni 
field. The Eckmen could not cope 
with the Maroons elusive backfield 
and its heavy line. It was the first 
home defeat suffered by the Redmen 
this year. 

Springfield scored quickly in the 
first period on a short drive. Benoit 
punted to the Massachusetts 45 and 
the Springfield offense showed what 
to expect the rest of the afternoon. 
A pass play followed by a ground 
play brought the ball to the twenty- 
seven. Don Tech then faded back and 
threw a touchdown pass to Don Rit- 
ter who was clear in the end zone. 

The end of the second period found 
Massachusetts trailing 13-0. The 
Gymnasts recovered on our twenty- 
five and were quickly up to the one 
when the Redmen were penalized for 
interfering with the pass receiver. 
Angy Correale counted from the one 
yard line and the extra point was 

Springfield added touchdowns in 
both the third and fourth periods. 
Correale scored his second t.d. of the 
afternoon when he crossed pay dirt 
and the kick made it twenty for the 
Maroons.. The fourth t.d. as the third 
was set up on pass interceptions and 
on the fourth down the Maroons fin- 
ished their scoring for the day. 

Credit must be given to lineman 
"Knobby" Nolan for the terrific game 
ho played. "Knobby" has been pointed 
out before for his great work but un- 
der the circumstances which pre- 
vailed last Saturday he showed he al- 
ways Rives his best and it will be a 
pleasure to watch him play for two 

more years.

Freshmen On Top 
But Varsity Bows 

The Little Indians pointed out the 
way to the Redmen harriers as both 
teams competed in the Connecticut 
Valley meet at Burlington, Vermont. 
The frosh swept seven of the first 
twelve places. Harry Aldrich et al 
really showed the other teams com- 
peting in the junior event who had 
it and who didn't, but the varsity 
didn't take the example to heart 
enough as it only managed to nose 
out last place Coast Guard. 

In the frosh meet, Aldrich as us- 
ual was out in front and well under 
the old course record, but blazing 
along not too far away were Hank 
Knapp and Lee Chisholm to make it 
a Maroon and White field. George 
M<Mullin finished sixth, Pio Angelini 
ninth, Duane Wheeler tenth, and Bob 
Steere in twelfth position. The team 
score was 13, remarkably low for a 
quadrangular meet. Of the silver 
shoes going to the first ten across, 
six came back on the same bus. 
Allen Leads Varsity 

The outmatched varsity just edged 
out Coast Guard 109-112 as not a 
single Redman finished in the first 
ten. Hal Allen was fourteenth with 
the jest of the team ranged from 
seventeenth back. Winner in the var- 
sity race was Vermont, with Connec- 
ticut and Springfield second and third. 
The actual finish of the Redmen was 
Allen (14), Phinney (17), Duncan 
(25), Hopkins (26), Sargent (27), 
Buck (34), Sniff en (81). 

The frosh result was 1st — the Little 
Indians, 2nd — Connecticut, 3rd — Ver- 

Frosh In Triumph 

Over Monson 3-0 

For Fourth Win 

The Little Indian hooters roared 
to their third straight victory with 
a H-0 triumph over Monson Academy 
last Wednesday in Monson. Al Hoel- 
zel ran his scoring total to seven for 
the season by tallying all three goals 
for the Maroon and White. 

The frosh were determined to win 
the contest for Art Spaulding, a mem- 
ber of the squad was forced to leave 
school due to ill health, and started 
right out. The game was hardly two 
minutes old when Hoelzel booted in 
the first score. The Little Indians 
continued to dominate play but didn't 
score again until the second period 
when Hoelzel came through with two 
more tallies (oh how you would love 
him, Mr. Briggs). 

The defensive highlights were 
turned in by Monk Wattanayagorn 
(what are we going to do next year) 
and Little John Knap ton who kept the 
Blue and White from breaking into 
the scoring column against the Little 
Indians who were not quite up to 
par as compared with their previous 
contests. Nevertheless the Castraber- 
ti-men were able to dominate play 
throughout the contest in gaining 
their fourth win of the season. Here 
is the season's record for the twice 
beaten frosh.

The record of the Little Indians if 
not the best ever achieved by a U-M 
frosh soccer squad, rates high on the 
list. The eleven goals in six contests 
also gives the '54-men a new scoring 
record. A number of the frosh are 
sure to see service with the varsity 
next year, and of these we can men- 
tion Hoelzel, Wattanayagorn, John 
Marx, Carl Clapp, and Dave Yesair. 
Others who were instrumental in the 
triumphs were Whitey Barrows. 
Rocky Bridges, John Knapton, Ron 
Murray, Irv Pearson, Dick Noyes, 
Paul Puddington, Jack O'Donnell, 
Bruce Fox, Joe Cohen, Ed Monaghan, 
EH Conley, John MacLaughlin, Bob 
Deans, Mickey Harris. 

Certainly the season can be put in- 
to the records without a tip of the 
hat to Coach Art Castraberti who 
welded together a team which out- 
classed most of the opposition and 
rolled to such an impressive record. 

Sixty-Five Report For 
Frosh Basketball 

\o less than sixty-five candidates 
responded to Coach "Red" Ball's call 
for all interested freshmen basketball 
prospects last Tuesday night. The 
candidates ranged in experience and 
height from no experience at all to 
captains of leading schools and in 
height from about 5'4" to 6'4". 

Coach Ball said that all boys would 
have to play both offense and de- 
fense and to be able to shoot with 
either hand. They must also be good 
set shot artists, especially the pros- 
pective corner and pivot men. 

The aspirants have been practicing 
since last Monday in two groups — 
one from seven to eight and another 
from eight vm f il nine. The boys would 
have started earlier but for the lay- 
ing of the new permanent floor. Coach 
Ball said that about lf>-20 boys will

A scant seven points separated the 
freshman hill-and-dalers from the 
most coveted win of the season H 
they copped the very respectable 
fourth position at the New Englands, 
Monday. Boston University and Prov- 
idence College tied with 98 points 
each, while the New Hampshire year- 
lings were only one point behind and 
a mere five points ahead of the Mar- 
oon and White aggregation. 

Harry Aldrich, fresh from his re-

spite of the fact that he broke the 
old course record. To laud him as the

What had loomed as a close high 
scoring battle turned out to be a 
complete rout as the Maroons from 
Springfield sent the Redmen down to 
their worst defeat of the year last 
Saturday, 26-0. The Eckmen at no 
time threatened to score. They showed 
a complete reversal of the form they 
displayed in their previous six games 
in which they had hammered the op- 
position for 161 points and an aver- 
age of twenty-seven points per game. 

The loss was the first at home thi-; 
year and makes their overall record 
three wins and four defeats. A wir.

who won last year 27-7, if the Red- 
men are going to better last season's

At last Friday night's rally, Coach 
Tommy Eck in his talk backed up an 
idea that many of us on this campus 
have long held. That idea is that it 
will be our athletic teams through the 
publicity they gain that will bring 
the University recognition. After in- 
troducing his team, coach Eck said 
that they were the boys that brought 
this school more publicity than it ever

season's record shows. 

Tufts has found the going a

For many, Saturday's Tufts gam- 
will be the first traditional duel be- 
tween the Jumbos and the Redmen. 
For others it will be the second, for 
some the third, for many of us the 
last. Of course, this is only speaking 
with reference to our undergraduate 
days. Dearie, you don't remember the 
last time we beat Springfield, but 
the last Tufts scalps were taken four 
years ago. 

It seems that Alumni Field is a 
happy- hunting ground for the Jum- 
bo who has gained 27-6 and 27-7 
wins in his last two trips here. Two 
yeas ago at Medford, however, out-

the U-M attack of the past three 

The Redmen Seniors 

Foremost, by virtue of rank and 
assignment (thank you Colonel Dt 
Home) is Captain Marty Anderson 
whose talents need no recounting. 
Whether on offense or defense, Andy 
has always stood out. Phil Roth, one 
of the fightingest Redmen win or 
lose, will leave a vacancy at end 
Which will not be easy to fill. When 
you come to "Tiger" Nichols and Bob 
W;»-ren you have as fine a pair of 
tackles as you could ask for. When 
Nick misses a block many brows are 
raised, an event which has seldom 
happened in three years. You can ask 
the Northeastern Huskies and others 
who ventured on the field against 
the Eckmen about Bob Warren 
Thev'd just as soon forget him. 

The name of Driscoll will pass into 
1' M grid annals with the Tufts 
game; the same for Turcotte and Pii:- 
to. Arnie's play this year not only 
boosted him to the varsity, but to the 
first string. They still spell Beaulac 
with TD at Williamstown; we'll spell 
It with all capitals. The Redmen 
weren't supposed to have a fullback

"Donker" Gleason did that and much 

more in three years of hlocking, teek

1. 2, 3, We Want More 
Last year at this time the preval- 
ent campus query centered around 
the 3 win 4 loss record of the Red- 
men who for the third consecutive 
year were going into the Tufts finale 
with three wins. We all know the re- 
sult, but this year it's three wins 
again, so the question arises again- 
what will it be this year? 

Saturday Tufts came about as clos.- 
as any team has to beating New 
Hampshire. They were only 14 points 
off, and furthermore outgained th< 
unbeaten Wildcats. The Jumbos hav 
come a long way from an early sea 
son tie and defeat. They boast a 3-3-1 
record having beaten Bates. Middl" 
bury, and Amherst. Williams (27-0), 
Bowdoin (19-13), and New Hamp 
shire (33-19) have accounted for the 
losses. But records mean nothing in 
♦his traditional contest. 

We'll Be There, Tommy 
When Anderson and Company start 
running back those kicks Saturday 
there may be only eleven white, gold, 
and maroon uniforms on the field. 
but there will be over three thousand 
other Redmen running the interfer- 
ence. The student body is aware that 
nothing would better show that the 
U of M is on the way up than a vic- 
tory to give the Eckmen a .500 sea- 
son. Those who witnessed the game i» 
Medford two years ago know that n >

before thje final whistle. Saturday 
the Massacre of Medford begins with 
the opening whistle.

Roughest Game 

This perhaps was one of the rough- 
est games U.M. has played. Four 
Mass. men were injured: Dave Hunt- 
er, Chet Libucha, Art Cole, and Hal 
Hatch. By far the worst was Hatch 
who had three stitches taken on his 
head where he had been kicked. No 
one was really outstanding for Tufts. 
Even their vaunted center forward 
Bennet did not seem exceptional. A 
couple of lucky breaks were what 
won the game for them. Amongst 
the Redmen, Dave Hunter at wing 
was a standout and Steve Lupton 
turned in his usual good game. 

The soccer team did r.ot have a suc- 
cessful season which can be attrib- 
uted in the main to its inability to 
score and the inexperience of the 
sophomore players. The boys tried 
hard and finished each game playing 
stronger than they started. If they 
had had a few more breaks, the sea- 
son average could well have been 
over .500. For next year the outlook 
is not certain. The Redmen are los- 
ing eleven seniors but they will have 
many experienced sophomores return- 
ing as juniors next year. With some 
players from this year's outstanding 
freshman team, next year's varsity 
could well have an excellent season.

Briggsmen Bow 
To Springfield 

0. Wednesday, November 8, ut 
Springfield, the University soccer 
team was outscored 5-2 by Spring- 
field College. The score, however, doe , 
not indicate the closeness of the 
game. Springfield's first three goals 
may be called lucky ones. The scoring 
started in the first quarter when 
Barbour, Springfield center-forward, 
scored. Their next goal was tallied 
from a melee in front of the goal by 
right inside Mason. A third goal oc- 
curred in the second quarter as IVnn- 
douf, Springfield right wing, lined u 
hard corner kick to the right side of 
thf goal. 

During the first half the Redmen 
were neither getting the ball coi, 
sistently nor passing accurately. Th.-\ 
failed to penetrate the Springfield 
penalty area more than five times. 
Undoubtedly the unfamiliar bounce 
of the ball on the Springfield field 
had a great deal to do with the U-M 
inability to pass accurately and move 
the ball up the field. 

The game took a different com 
plexion in the third quarter. TJw 
main reason for this waa the moving 
of Ted Thomas from a half-back po- 
sition into the center- forward posi- 
tion. With Thomas in the line U.M. 
completely dominated play and was 
in scoring area the whole third peri- 
od. With the ball deep in Springfield 
territory it was not long before we 
scored. Late in the third quarter, Co 
captain Chet Libucha tallied on | 
high hard shot to the goalie's left 
The Springfield goalie did not hav. 
a chance on this pretty shot. Still 
pressing in the fourth quarter. Coach 
Brigg's strategy paid off when TKoi I 
as scored from a scramble in front 
of the goal. That made it Springfield 

8, U-M 2. It looked like the Redme< 

would tie it up, but more goall failed 
to materialize as the Briggsmen Were 

unable to make the most of some ex- 

'•'l'ent scoring opportunities. 

Springfield closed the door on al! 

Maroon and White hopes when the: 
scored two goals in the fourth quar- 
ter. The first by Barbour was a har ! 
shot to the left side. The other 
by center-half Allen was a beaut'f

Varsity 14th Out of 16 In 
New England, 6th in Yankee Conf. 

Plummeting from the heights they 
have occupied in cross-country cir- 
cles in the past few years, the varsity 
harriers ended a disappointing season 
by barely beating out Wesleyan and 
Coast Guard in the New England 
Championships. In the fast and 
crowded field, the Maroon and White 
was overshadowed as it has not been 
for many years. Not one with those 
colors managed to finish in the first 
twenty. This is not to say that a 
large amount of work has not been 
put in by those on the team this fall, 
but there has been nobody capable of 
real front running since George Cod- 
ing was lost to the service three 
weeks ago. 

Unimposing as it may sound, Hal 
Allen's feat of finishing twenty- 
fourth was a very real one, as he did 
sn in a field of 112 runners from all 
over New England. Had more of the 
team followed close behind, a good 
score might still have been attained, 
but next to him for us was Damon 
Phinney. back in 44th place. Al Pun- 
can, 67th, Harry Hopkins, 81st, and 
Walt Sargent, 84th, completed the 
■coring. The team score was an eve?i 
300 points. 

In the Yankee Conference meet, 
run concurrently but scored separate- 
ly. Maine and Vermont tied for first 
with 49 points each. The Maroon ani 
Whit*' brought up the rear in this 
one. Hal Allen crossed the line elev- 
enth, with the others, in the order 
above, 20th, 24th, 33rd, and 34th, fo- 
an aggregate score of 122.

First Middlesex Loss;

Middlesex A was toppled from the 
ranks of the undefeated Monday by 
a Butterfield C squad that gained 
a 33-32 win in overtime in what was 
by far the most thrilling contest of 
the season. As a result the League B 
race has narrowed down to a three 
way race, but what a race. Middlesex 
A, Butterfield C and Mills A each 
have one loss, Middlesex losing to But- 
terfield, Butterfield to Mills, and 
Mills to Middlesex. At this rate the 
League B title won't be decided until 
there's a playoff. Middlesex, however, 
has a one win margin.

Frosh on Warpath, 
Roll To 19-0 Win 
Over Springfield 

Sparked by a fine passing attack 
and great line play when the chips 
were down, the Little Indians downed 
the Springfield College Frosh 19-0 on 
Alumni Field last Saturday morning. 
It was the fourth triumph in five 
starts for the Ballmen who ring down 
the curtain on a successful season 
tomorrow afternoon here at 2:30 
against Trinity College. 

The two clubs played a scoreless 
first period, a penalty nullifying a 
brilliant punt return by Charley St. 
Paul, who aided by timely blocks 
raced fifty yards with a Springfield 
kick. Early in the quarter St. Paul 
punted from deep in his own territory 
to the Maroon's 16. Most of the first 
period play was in Springfield terri- 

In the second quarter the Little 
Indians opened up with their passing 
attack. St. Paul hit Casey for a first 
down on the visitors' 33. Then Char- 
lie chucked to Redman. Another com- 
pletion to Casey was nullified by a 
penalty, but Redman flipped a long 
heave to Casey who caught it on the 
six and raced over. DiVincenzo's tal- 
ented toe made it 7-0. 

Midway in the period the Ballmen 
fumbled in their own territory, but 
proceeded to recover a Springfield 
bobble. Rex then made seven. Redman 
around his own right end was good 
for yardage to the Maroon 18. St. 
Paul raced off-tackle for four and 
then on the next play broke through 
the Maroons only to fumble on the 
five. The ball rolled into the end zone 
where Taft was Milty-on-the-spot to 
recover it for a touchdown. 

In the third quarter Brophy inter- 
cepted a Springfield pass, and after 
an exchange of punts the Ballmen 
were off again. Mercadante sped to 
the Springfield 42 for a first down. 
Then on a long pass which Moore of 
Springfield deflected, Casey grabbed 
for the pigskin on the twenty and 
was off for pay dirt. The play covered 
50 yards.

smoking along the paths on campus, 

and also to cut down on the wearing 

of jeans. However in retaliation, they 

request that the male population try 

to look a little less like slobs to and 

from classes. 

Knowlton house girls complained 
about the parking situation in front 
of their dorm, pointing out the wealth 
of tickets floating out of the campus 
cop's pen, and the fact that the only 
No Parking sign is almost past the 
house. They requested that at least 
another no parking sign be put up so 
that their folks will know about it 
when they come visiting. However, I 
don't think they would be too annoyed 
to see a relief from this no parking 
situation which caused much conster- 
nation in that heavy rain two weeks 

The Senate meeting this week went 
off surprisingly well. There was little 
bickering, and very little petty detail 
brought up on the floor. Altogether, 
the new Senate, despite a few poli-

agree have been doing an extremely 
efficient job; as well, as I can re-

the best Senate this campus has vet

That wound up the scoring as the 
Little Indians put on a great goal 
line stand, not once but twice as the 
enraged Maroons tried vainly to 
break into the scoring column. Spring- 
field marched to a first down on the 
U.M. one foot line yet failed to score. 
A penalty for delay of the game put 
the ball on the five. Three plays 
carried it back to the one foot line, 
but the last foot was never crossed 
as the white jerseyed line stopped the 
Maroons cold. The Little Indians 
punted out and Springfield marched 
down to the 13 for a first down. Once 
again the home forces were equal to 
the task.

To 46-0 Massacre 
Over Leicester 

Last Friday, the Stockbridge Hlue 
and White clashed with Leicester 
Junior College on the University 

Stockbridge scored its first touch- 
down six minutes after the starting 
whistle. Paced by long runs, the Ag- 
gies soon made it 14-0, as the inept 
Leicester team literally littered the 
field with injured players. After the 
second score, Stockbridge kicked off 
to Leicester. Kelly intercepted a 
Leiester pass and ran it back into 
enemy territory. Paced by another 20 
yard rush by Kelly, the Blue and 
White pushed the ball down and 
across the goal to make the score 20-0. 

At the start of the second period, 
Kell intercepted another pass and ran 
the ball back to the Leicester six 
yard line before he was halted. One 
play later, the score was 27-0. Short- 
ly before the end of the half, Priest 
broke loose and galloped for another 
touchdown to make the score read 
34-0 at half-time. 

In the third quarter, Ryder caught 
a long pass on the run and continued 
until he hit pay-dirt. The score now 
read 40-0. After Leicester failed to 
make any gain, the Aggies took over 
in the third quarter. A long pass from 
Desmond to Collins ate up most of 
the distance to a T.D., and Priest 
took it across.

The second fraternity Round Robin 
for freshmen will be held on Monday, 
November 20, beginning at (i p.m. 

George Krier, an exchange student 
from Fiance, has arrived on campus. 
The fraternity houses will take turns 
having him as their guest for meals. 

It was decided by a majority in 
the I.F.C. to discontinue the awarding 
of points toward interfraternity com- 
petition for the Saturday fraternity 
parties held during Winter Carnival 
and Greek Weeks. The possibility of 
awarding points for a motif dance to 
be held at the end of a less eventful 
week was suggested. 

The rushing rules will be relaxed 
next year so that, prior to rushing, 
fraternity parties may be billed as 
"Invitation Dance, freshmen invited." 

Alpha Epsilon Pi 

Last Friday night, Phi chapter of 
Alpha Epsilon Pi held a quiet stag 
party for the other fraternities on 

Saturday night, Mr. and Mrs. 
Frank Singer were chaperones at the 
dance held at the chapter house. 

The Blue and Gold dropped a de- 
cision to S.A.E. last Tuesday night 
to finish out the season. 

This Saturday night after the 
game, the chapter will visit en masse 
the brother chapter at Tufts. 

Under the direction of social chair- 
man Art Mintz, plans are in progress 
for the annual Military Brawl to be 
held the night after the Mili Rail. 
The year's classic promises to sur- 
pass those of previous years. 

Phi chapter congratulates Art Al- 
intuck on his election as Chief Justice 
of the Interfraternity Judiciary 

urday night at Munson Memorial. 
Music was supplied by Jimmy Mc- 
Clure and his orchestra; chaperones 
were Mr. and Mrs. Walter Eisen- 
menger, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Allan, 
and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Oliver. 

Alpha Tau Gamma 

Everyone is invited to the Mug- 
wump "do as you please party", to be 
held at A.T.G. on Friday evening, 
November 17, under the capable di- 
rection of co-social chairmen Roger 
Pihl and Jim Rumrill. A gala evening 
is being planned. Chaperones will be 
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dunham and 
friends. Refreshments will be served. 

Pan! Auclair, Gerry Cobb, and Jim 
Rumrill, all of the class of '52, and 
Warren Healy, VI, have been pledged 
to A.T.G. 

Kappa Sigma 

Kappa Sigma announces the elec- 
tion of the following officers for this 
semester: president, Richard Vara, 
and Grand Procurator, Gordon Fran- 

Jack MacDonald has been elected 
treasurer for the class of '53; Jack 
Rf noit, treasurer for the class of '52. 

Social chairmen Fred Allen and 
Jake Early have been making exten- 
sive plans for Kappa Sigma's Em- 
bassy Ball Weekend, to be held on 
December 1, 2, and 8. This impressive 
and colorful formal ranks as one of 
the leading social affairs sponsored 
by the house. 

Robert Driscoll, '53, has been ini- 
tiated into Gamma Delta Chapter of 
Kappa Sigma. 

Russ Perkins, '50, now a second 
lieutenant in the Air Force, spent 
the past weekend in Amherst. He has 
been transferred from Lowry Field 
in Denver, Colorado to Westover 

Phi Sigma Kappa 

The Phi Sig intramural football 
team finished the season undefeated 
after downing S.A.E. , 12-6, and beat- 
ing A.E.Pi, 26-14. Probably the out- 
standing factor in favor of Phi Sig 
was their consistently high scoring. 
A total of 262 points was added up 
by the Maroon team, giving Phi Sig 
an average of 26.2 points for the 
entire season. 

It would be unjust to speak of any 
player as outstanding, for the team 
was coordinated as a whole on of- 
fense and defense. The only major 
change that occured in offensive and 
defensive playing was the continual 
interchanging of Carl Aylward and 
Fred Lahey. Backfield men were gen- 
erally Ed McCauley, Don Costello, 
Roger Dean, and Bruce Wogan, while 
the line consisted of Mac Payne, Cliff 
Hagberg, Bud Knight, and Randy 

The Autumn Nocturne Formal, an 
annual social affair, was held at the

covered in time to trounce the Theta 
Chi squad Thursday by a score of 

Monday, the squad took time out 
from regular schedule to hold an ex- 
hibition game with the football team 
from Chi Omega. The game seemed 
to present an easy victory for S.A.E., 
but the boys greatly underestimated 
their opponents, as proved by the re- 
sulting score of 55-32 in favor of the 
squad from Lincoln Avenue.

The A mitt rst Student 

In donning their peagreens once 
again on Tuesday morning, the fresh- 
men swallowed what proved a bitter 
pill for some of them. They did it 
despite the knowledge that theirs is 
one of the biggest classes, physically 
speaking, in the history of the college, 
and probably one of the most capable 
of resisting sophomore hazing. 

They put on the beanies because 
they, as well as the sophomores, re- 
alized that the traditionally good- 
natured interclass rivalry was getting 
out of control. Marks were slipping 
because freshmen, worried over the 
prospect of having their heads shaved, 
couldn't concentrate on study. Haz- 
ing, far from enforcing the tradition- 
al regulations, was incurring only 
bitter animosity and lost friendship.

nounced today the awarding of undt r-

freshman class before matriculation.

the most objectionable dating prac- 

1. College girls tend to be artificial

.hey had our slow-moving brother moving at too fast 
a pace with those quick-trick cigarette tests! A fast puff ... a swift sniff . 
a quick inhale. . . a rapid exhale. Terrapin's head was spinning - 
didn't know if he was coming or going! Hut he slowed down to his own 
speed — decided there was no ne«d to rush. After all, he figured, 
how could anyone possibly prove cigarette mildness so fast? 
And he was right, too! That's why we suggest: 
The sensible test . . . the 30-Day Camel Mildness Test, which 
simply asks you to try Camel- as your steady smoke — 

on a pack after pack, day after day basis. \o -nap

one is still seeing: service. Nine offices,

number of people have reviewed the 

Even if the request is granted, the 
fun is gone. There are reams more of 
red tape before an actual cash trans- 
action is made and the new caduceus 
is delivered to the infirmary. 

Who is to blame for such a ponder- 
ous system? Easy! Your hard-headed, 
cautious old forefathers: business- 
men who wanted to make sure/ that 
the taxpayer's money was not squan- 
dered or spent frivolously. 

Can you, with a cursory know- 
ledge of such a system for state bud- 
geting, hurl charges of "indecisive 
action" against the University ad- 
ministration ? 

Can you, without being ludicrous, 
hang the table and demand immedi-

Dr. Hodge Goes To 
South Africa In 
Search of Hormone 

An urgent request of the federal 
government has caused the U. of M. 
to grant leave of absence to Dr. Wal- 
ter H. Hodge, associate professor of 
j botany. 

Dr. Theodore Kozlowski, head of 
the botany department, has announced 
that Dr. Hodge will leave shortly for 
South Africa as plant explorer for 
the Department of Agriculture in 
their stepped-up program of hunting 
for sources of the ultra-precious hor- 
mone, cortisone, which is credited 
with the alleviation of arthritis and 
the curing of early stages of rheu- 
matic heart disease. 

At present, the only source of the 
drug is the tissue of cattle, a source 
too short in supply to yield more 
than clinical amounts for research. 
Certain flowering plants are reported 
to yield chemical precursors from 
which this drug could be obtained. 

Dr. Hodge, no novice in the field 
of botanical exploration in the trop- 
ics, spent the war years as a U. S. 
Government plant explorer in the 
search for strategic antimalarials, es- 
pecially quinine bark, in the Andean 
forests of eastern Peru. He has also 
led botanical expeditions in Colombia 
and Ecuador in Central America and 
in several parts of the West Indies. 

During the past summer, Dr. Hodge 
was a lecturer on tropical botany at 
Harvard University where he organ- 
ized a new graduate course held in 
Cuba and in Honduras. His research 
interests have been published in a 
large series of papers dealing pri- 
marily with problems in economic 
botany, ethnobotany, and taxonomy, 
as well as in the floristics and phy- 
togeography of the Lesser Antilles 
and Colombia. 

Use my imagination on campus 
fashion!, the assignment Mya hope 
fully— bat I say "On what??'' Shall 1 
transform fatigues Into gray flan- 
nels and sport jackets? Shall I crea'. 
false illusions about these stamping 
grounds (as if we didn't have 850 
extra froah already!)? Or shall I re- 
port campus fashions as I see them 
(wait a minute while I run quick to 
get my rose-colored glases.)? Well, 
tht motto of this paper being what it 
is, maybe best I do. 

Being lazy tho' (besides I still have 
a Shakespeare play to read for to- 
morrow), guess I'll skip the fatigues- 
they've been here for a decade and 
are in to stay. 

The latest and newest thing every 
year but still "purty" to look at is 
an Adelphia jacket (we've noticed Gin 
still sporting his) the lettering on the 
jacket is still a bit confusing for the 
freshmen — they can't quite figure out 
if it's a cereal name spelled back- 
wards or merely a manufacturer gone

As Roister Doister Actors Shine 

A sparse crowd witnessed the Roi-

the audience was small did not put 
B damper on the production. All of

who gave an excellent presentation. 

The curtain rose on a stylized set- 
ting, featured for the first time at

curtains, and white window and door

the modern furniture borrowed from

A storm of almost hurricane proportions hit the University 

campus last week and left a trail of damage in its wake. Approx- 
imately 120,000 damage was suffered by buildings here, rwealed 
Mr George Brehm, superintendent of building! and grounds. 

The most extensive damage of the storm occurred in Federal 
Circle. At 8:45 p.m. on Saturday night, a huge pine tree fell on 

apartments K-.{ and K 4 in the Circle. 
Fortunately, the m-eupants of both 
apartments wen- away for the week- 
olid. The tree completely wrecked 
the two apartments .splitting the en- 
tin- block almost in two. Occupants 
of K-.'l were Mr. and Mrs. Waynun 
Petersen with their girl 
twins. K-4 housed Mr. and Mrs. Paul 
I-anghcld, two-year old Cretchen and 
X-morith old Mark. 

However, damage was not confined 
to merely Federal Circle. The flag- 
pole in front of South College was 
■napped off at the base. On the other 
side of campus, the geology labora- 
tory in Fernald Mall was loaded 

The glass roof „f the Oag,. suf- 
fered extensive damage. Flying glass 
cut the overhanging nets, and water 
damage was suffered by both the 
nets and the permanent floor that 
was completed only recently. 

The greenhouses near French Hall 
suffered the loss of a number of glass 
panes. By the college pond, the giant 
Christmas tree was felled. Butterfield 
dormitory had many shingles blown 
off the roof, and at Oreenough, an 
entire row of pine trees was blown 

A tree falling across the wires on 
North Pleasant Street, in front „f 
the St. Regis Diner, caused Theta 
Chi, Phi Sig, and Kappa Alpha Theta 
to he without heat and light. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma suffered 
$300 worth of dumage, the wind 
ripping off half of the roof, and 
water ruining the ceiling of th.- top 
of two floors.

disrobed to reveal her mermaid's 
costume. Effective lighting and storm 
sound affects at this time created an 
appropriate atmosphere. Her voice 
carried extremely well throughout 
th<- entire performance, and she 
splendidly portrayed the part of the 
fliitacious, naive mermaid. 

Bettina Hollis ) carrying a large 
share of the drama, did an equally 
praiseworthy job as Mrs. Paul Mar- 
tin, the doctor's wife. She was sophis- 
ticated, and yet realistic as the part 
required her to be. Her outstanding 
scene came just before the final cur- 
tain when she found that Miranda 
was a mermaid. She played it with 
all the action and vocal expression 
that the shoek demanded. 

Bill Massidda as the chauffeur 
added much comedy to the show. His 
lines were well delivered, and neces- 
sary actions were well executed. 

Nurse Carey, a character part, was 
well enacted by Jean Parker. Her 
voice was particularly suited for the 
part which demanded the cracked

Worthy Students 

It is due to the foresight and gen- 
erosity of those who have estab- 
lished scholarships funds that many 
U. of M. students are able to con- 
tinue their studies. This year, 190 
students will receive funds from the 
$21,600 available from established 

Many of the scholarships are lim- 
ited to students in particular fields 
or to those from a certain locality. 
For example, the Lotts Crabtree

students each year, specifies that 
these students must be interested in

In Reply to the Harvester 

Prior to Thanksgiving vacation, a newspaper called the Stock- 
bridge Harvester appeared on campus published by the represen- 
tative reporters of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. The 
purpose of this paper was outlined in a message "To Stockbridge 
Students" which also contained certain statements about, and 
requests of the COLLEGIAN. 

In order not only to answer these requests but more impor- 
tant to clarify, for the entire campus, what the COLLEGIAN 
feels is a lack of understanding of COLLEGIAN policies, we are 
reprinting portions of this message with helpful comments. 

"We have been unable to have the COLLEGIAN give us 
enough space for our news. As a result this week we are printing 
the Stockbridge Harvester. We hope this will be temporary." 

The COLLEGIAN reserves the right to determine the 
amount of space to be allowed any group and sincerely feels that 
we have been fair in judging Stockbridge and all other campus 

"Stockbridge comprises approximately '/« of the student 
body on campus. We feel that we should be allotted one full page 
on the COLLEGIAN, or '/« of the average issue." 

If we were to divide the space available in this paper accord- 
ing to the size of groups on campus we would immediately de- 
stroy the main function of the newspaper which is to serve as a 
central source of reliable information to the university students 
and staff. The ROTC which has over a thousand students could 
ask for a third of the paper, the School of Engineering could claim 
one fourth of the paper because they have over 300 students, and 
so on until we would find that there just wasn't enough paper 
to go around. It is well to remember that the majority of the 
space in this newspaper aside from advertisements has news ar- 
ticles of interest to every student in the university. We have no 
way of determining whether or not each Stockbridge student is 
interested in this general news of his university, but we are go- 
ing on the assumption that Stockbridge students consider them- 
selves members of the university and are eager to take part in 
(at least by reading news accounts of) the general university 
life. Stockbridge should remember, that their $450 support of 
the paper does not pay alone for news specifically referring to 
Stockbridge but for news which is of interest to our university. 

"We would like the following to be done by the COLLEGIAN 

1. Continue reporting Stockbridge sports and fraternity 
news as in the past, namely, on their respective pages." 

The COLLEGIAN initiated this before mentioned plan and 
will certainly continue to follow it through. 

"2. Let us continue to have our heading. We would how- 
ever prefer a definite space allotment each week." 

The COLLEGIAN offered originally to intergrate Stock- 
bridge news more completely with the news in the rest of the 
paper by entering their various news items individually with 
separate headings and displayed in the best place possible. This 
plan would emphasize each article's individual importance instead 
of being lost under one main heading. We believe that any Stock- 
bridge student would rather spend more time looking for a par- 
ticular item of news than to lose the value of having their most 
important news on the front page, official announcements on the 
editorial page, etc. 

However, if the students still feel that they want their news 
under the main Stockbridge Column heading then the COLLEGI- 
AN will be glad to oblige, for it is less work to plan one column 
than to plan half a dozen separate news items. 

As to the request for definite space allotment each week, we 
can only say that any attempt to do this in the past has proved 
detrimental to both parties. Some weeks there may be more news 
than others, and in a week with little news there would be blank 
space or filler material of no news value whatsoever. The paper is 
made up after the news is turned in, not before. The length of 
news articles or the content of the paper as a whole is determined 
only after we have a fairly good idea of the amount of news avail- 
able and the importance of each news article.

This Exchanging 

The Williams Record 

To the Editor: 

The college Greek letter fraterni- 
ties have a great tradition behind 
them. I happen to be one of those 
brought up to respect them for the 
values they have brought to college 
students in the past. It therefore 
comes as quite a shock to have even 
suggested the destruction of one of 
their basic principles: the right to 
choose their members. To say 'Frat- 
ernity' and not mean 'exclusive' is to 
divide the campus 15 ways and ex- 
pect brotherly feeling and interbroth- 
erhood rivalry. 

Union College Times 

The following are some of the re- 
sults of a poll taken at Union. The 
question asked was: "What improve- 
ments would you like to see in Un- 
ion's parties?" Ans.— "They are good 
. . . I think they are a lot of fun. 
Drinking from two in the afternoon 
until one in the morning is quite a 
lot. The beer parties start too soon. 
You can't do anything about it, but 
I myself would rather drink whiskey." 
Ans. — "Too much emphasis in cer- 
tain houses on sex on the wekends: 
girls and boys sleeping in the houses. 
No more drinking than in other col- 

Connecticut Campus 

After reading an article on the 
front page of the Hartford Courant, 
I became what is known as an "irate 
student". The article was headlined 
"U Conn Fun Magazine Suspended." 
The article went on to say that let- 
ters of criticism that had been re- 
ceived from prominent persons stated 
that Touchstone "is subversive and 
dangerous to democracy; that it 
tends to undermine the foundations 
of family life and that the April 
issue last spring was in effect an 
appeal for lust and drinking." As one 
student so aptly put it: "We're liv- 
ing in the age of the witch hunt 
once more . . " 

And as I read further, I came upon 
this statement by Doctor Weber "If 
this is not done (Submission of aM 
copy for publication to a committee 
for censorship with regard to lewd- 
ness and bad taste), I will recommend 
to the president that appropriate 
machinery be set up to stop the pub- 
lication of such magazines on the

Alumni Secretary Worked In Circus I XgJLTJ&T 

ates or non-crarluarps of *ha IT «« •. ■ * 


George (Red) Emery, the Alumni 
Secretary, is one of the busiest men 
on our campus. His work in general, 
however, is little known to students, 
so here is a brief history of the life 
and work of the man who acts as 
the connecting link between the U. 
of M. and its graduates. 

Mr. Emery was born in Marlboro, 
Mass., in 1904. He attended the 
schools there and in 1920 entered 
Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

ates or non-graduates of the U of Jj 
and the Stockbridge School of Agri. 
culture. This necessitates keeping 
numerous card records, records which 
now include approximately 7500 grad- 
uates and 4500 non-graduates of the 
University, and 3500 Stockbridge 
graduates and non-graduates. 

In addition to this, Mr. Emery 
prepares the Alumni Bulletin which 
is sent out periodically to all al- 
umni. He is very proud of the work

George "Red" Emery, Alumni Secretary, formerly worked in Circus. 

After graduation in 1924 ("Magna 
cum difficulty", he says), he held a 
variety of positions. He taught high 
school for a time, worked as sales- 
man for a tree-surgeon company, and 
then took a job in the personnel of- 
fice of the Hood Rubber Company, 
None of these positions seemed to 
satisfy him, however, so in 1927, 
he did just what he had wanted to 
do all along. He joined the circus. 

In the winter of 1930, Mr. Emery 
journeyed back to Alma Mater for a 
short visit. While here, he learned 
that the position of Alumni Secretary 
was to become open in a few weeks. 
It was suggested that he apply for 
the job; he did, and got the position. 

To quote Mr. Emery, he is "at 
everyone's beck and call," but the 
main job that he and his staff of 
three carry out is keeping track of 
all the people who are either gradu- 

of the Alumni Building Corporation, 
through whose efforts most of the 
larger dormitories have been built. 
Alumni also built or initiated pro- 
jects through which were built Me- 
morial Hall, the Physical Education 
Building, and Alumni Field — includ- 
ing the broadcasting booth. Alto- 
gether about four million dollars 
worth of construction has been fi- 
nanced by this group and more ii 
on the way. 

In his spare time, which, as you 
might guess, is limited, Mr. Emery 
acts as a director of the Three- 
County Fair in Northampton where, 
among other duties, he engages the 
acrobats and animal trainers who pre- 
sent the grandstand show. He also 
likes to spend free moments with hii 
wife and two children, a boy of five 
and a girl of nine.

Quarterly Has Good Material 
But Shows Poor Technique 

by Dick Andrews 

The fall issue of the Quarterly is an austere little 
magazine. Its format is neat. It is a magazine that 
can be read in a hurry. But with the virtue of its 
readability, there are the attendant evils of superfi- 
cialty and technical impotence. This is not to say that 
good writing must be written by the cryptic "long- 
hairs". The Quarterly editors have taken a step in the 
right direction. They have succeeded in dislodging the 
magazine from the quick-sands of intellectual verbosi- 
ty. But in the process, their publication has become 
lost on the plains of poor technique. Of the magazine's 
pictorial art, two examples of draftsmanship have been 
accepted as good art. In the same way, dramatic imag- 
inativeness per se has been taken as good literature. 
I am not prepared to say anything of the poetry. 

I do not want to discourage the contributors, but it 
is my belief that criticism must be voiced if integrity 
in creative writing is to be maintained. 

Shirley Hathaway's Far From the Hill contains 
most of the classic elements of tragedy: betrayed love, 
despair, human corruption, destruction of human life. 
In her attempt to mold the substance of the story 
about what seems a sound framework, the author has 
fallen short of a realistic, natural creation. Miss Hath- 
away has tried to gild the form with a glittering 
imagination, but errors in her style have created 
some unsightly imperfections which will not be dis- 
guised. Her Beatrice, sweating over an ironing-board, 
is imaginatively conceived but is her room really pene- 
trated by "a smothering and suffocating sun"? The 
old man, Seth, might be the epitome of the urbanished 
farmer, but even he could not imagine he saw "sleighs 
on the dirt road". Someone has got to pay the price 
for stylistic error and too often it is the confused 

Bill Estes' Lonely is more expertly formed as is Leo 
Cohen's The Velvet Glove. Both these writers know 
their characters. Their stories are convincing, almost 
attaining their intended autobiographical sneerity. It 
would be gratifying if the reader were told more about 
the real feelings of their principal characters. Mr. 
Cohen's boy-hero was real almost to the last, but he 

evaporated into a moralism at the close of the story. 
The young man in Lonely, though he managed to re- 
tain his identity throughout his nocturnal escapade, 
never acheived a third dimension — he was a "surface 
character" so often present in the radio, and movie 
narrative or drama. We got only a hint, when at the 
climax, he "felt sick", but that is all. 

It was a delight to see satire included in the pub- 
lication. Phil Frankel's imaginative treatment of the 
tenure system, of the occupational sins of the ivory 
tower, is amusing and thoughtful. There is one minor 
defect which is quite apparent. The symbols are made 
too obvious. I kept thinking as I read it, "He's drawn 
the caricatures and now after he's explained it all, 
they aren't funny any more!" Manilla, by Lloyd Sin- 
clair, is an unusual and potentially valuable contrib- 
ution. It recalled to mind some similar experiences of 
my own while in Manilla after the liberation. I regret 
that the author was not less inhibited in his treatment 
It is difficult to communicate one's feelings to those 
who never had the fortune, or misfortune, of having 
been in post-war Manilla. In our time, over the shouts 
of the chauvinists, there should be voiced, to all of us, 
the uneasy, suffocating effect on the mind resulting 
from living in a bombed-out chaos. 

The late G. B. Shaw defined a critic as one who 
leaves no turn unstoned. It is hoped that these missiles 
have not hit too low, that the Quarterly will be stim- 
ulated thereby along its path to literary excellence. 


So you've seen the new 1951 calendar. Or have 
you ? If not, you had better beat a path to the Univer- 
sity Store. You'll find a handsome, 92 page engagement 
book with 34 top-flight photos of University lifo 
ready and waiting to do its job of selling the Uni- 
versity right in your own home, or among friends 
and relatives. 

The University calendar, selling at 90 cents a 
copy, is not just one more item on the University 
store inventory. It is self-sustaining and needs all-o^ 
campus support if it is to be issued another year.

The Local Sorority Council, com- 
prised of 12 volunteers from the 
other -ix campus sororities, are the 
official sponsors of the new organi- 
zation, and they prepared the in- 
itiation degree. The young sorority 
has been founded on non^seetarian 
and non-discriminating principles. 

Although this group will not be 
ready now for the rushing season, 
they will conduct their rushing pro- 
gram during the second semester 
when the Pan-Hellenic Council will 
set aside a special period for this 

The volunteer spon soring commit- 
tee is made up of the following: 
Muriel Fauteux, Virginia Sullivan, 
Connie Petrosky, Catherine Cole, 
Priscilla Gaffney, Joan Cormack, 
Barb Dean, Cherry Heath, Jane Mc-

In tribute to Dr. Hugh Potter 
Baker, late president of the Uni- 
versity, the trustees of the New- 
York State University College of 
Forestry at Syracuse, voted on No- 
vember 18 to give the name "Baker 
Auditorium" to the auditorium of 
Louis Marshall Memorial Building at 
the College. 

Dr. Baker was the first Dean of 
Forestry at Syracuse. 

The auditorium now bearing his 
name has had almost daily use by 
various groups at Syracuse Univer- 
sity, since it was completed in 1933. 
It accommodates 550 persons. 

The trustees' action requested the 
College's old Portrait of Dr. Baker 
be hung in or near the auditorium, 
with an appropriate plaque. 

The portrait was given the college 
by Mrs. Baker after the former dean 
and university president died in Flor- 
ida, May 24.

The Massachusetts Rural Outlook 
Conference moved into its second day 
in Bowker Auditorium on the U. of 
M. campus today. 

The Thursday program of the Con- 
ference opened with breakfast at 
Draper, and then broke up into com- 
modity group meetings. In the af- 
ternoon, the various committees will 
give five minute highlight reports of 
the conference. 

The procedure committee will also 
give a report of its activities and 
the delegates to the conference will 
hear a closing address by Louis A.

by University president Ralph Var 

Following President Van Meter's 
talk, speeches were given by Dean 
Dale H. Sieling, Louis A. Bean, Nath- 
an S. Koffsky, and Gertrude Weiss. 

In the afternoon, the delegates 
participated in sessions dealing with 
"Agriculture and the National De- 
fense" and "Adjusting New England 
and Rural Living to the Farm Out- 
look." After the meetings, the con- 
ference members participated in a 
general discussion period. 

The evening sessions of the con- 
clave were taken up with commodity- 
group meetings in various campus 
buildings. Groups met to discuss

In an attempt to minimize possihle partiality in selecting the 

Honorary Colonel, a new system has 
been devised in choosing the judges, 
it was announced by Colonel Wil- 
loughby, advisor to the Honorary 
Colonel Committee. 

The names of twelve cadets, prom- 
inent in school activities and repre- 
senting the four classes and as many 
houses as possible, will be presented 
by the Committee to a final author- 
ity. This man, a cadet, will pick five 
judges from the twelve names and 
submit them to the committee on the, 
afternoon of the Ball. All names will 
be kept BSCnt in an effort fa avoid 
the possibility of student pressure on 
the judges. 

Shortly before intermission on the 
night of the Hall, the judges will turn 
their votes over to the Committee, 
one of whom will announce the re- 
sults during the intermission. In case 
of a tie, the girl who polled the high- 
est number of cadet votes in the 
preliminaries at Bowker Auditorium 
on November 14th will be named 

The five girls competing for the 
honors are: Barbara Gates and 
Jackie McCarthy of the class of '54, 
Joan Hartley and Judy Sanders of 
'53, and Mrs. Nancy Hagberg, class 
of '62. 

Tickets for the affair may be ob- 
tained from members of any of the 
committees or at the ticket booth

Questioned about the feasability of 
having a doctor whose only duty

Redmen Edged 
By Tufts 7-6 

Defeat Mills X m2 ,n *4 

For Court Opener I B's Blank Phi Sigma Kappa In Semi-Finals 

Hoopsters Prime 

In Grid Final] With Scrimmages 

The Redmen closed down their grid 
season by bowing to the Jumbos of 
Tufts 7-<! at Medford on the 18th 
before a Homecoming crowd which 
saw the favored Brown and Blue 
squeeze by when Marty Anderson's 
attempt at tying the game failed. The 
try for the extra point went to the 
right of the goal post. 

Tufts grabed a 7-0 lead in the sec- 
ond p«rk>d but the Eckmen roared 
right back. It was a sixty yard heave, 
Reebenacher to Phil Roth who had 
outdistanced the Tufts secondary, 
that accounted for the score. When 
the try for the extra missed Tufts 
had a 7-fi lead. 

The Redmen drove into Jumbo ter- 
ritory in the third period only to 
fumble. Then, in the waning minutes 
the maroon and White horde marched 
towards the goal only to have time 
run out. The 7-6 margin has become 
a jinx score as the Medfordites now 
have triumphed by that exact score 
four times in the grid riv-' " be- 
tween the two schools. 

Danny Bennett sparked Tufts in 
its triumph, doing most of the ground 
gaining and scoring the touchdown. 
Nevertheless, the Jumbo offense, 
which the previous Saturday had 
rolled up three touchdowns against 
powerful New Hampshire was held 
back by the spirited UM line. It was 
turnabout, for early in the season the 
Eckmen found themselves engaging 
in a scoring barrage. The defensive 
problem was finally solved, Tufts 
flanker et al, but one touchdown was 
not quite enough to halt the Jumbo. 

With December ninth and the open- 
ing of the basketball season rapidly 
approaching, the squad members are 
working harder in their daily prac- 
tices to get into top shape. 

Coach "Red" Ball has already cut 
his squad down to fifteen men among 
whom are all of last years starting 
five. Bill Prevey from No. Adams, 
Ray Gagnon of Adams, and Ed Mc- 
Cauley of North Quincy, Hal Ost- 
man of Braintree and Bob Johnston 
of Worcester. Bill, Ray and Ed in 
the order listed were last years top 
scorers while Hal and Bob were the 
mainstays on defense. 

The other returning lettermen in- 
clude Dick Erlandson, Paul Goldman, 
Ray Gunn and Paul Bordeau. The 
remaining six are made up of two 
graduates from last year's freshman 
squad, "Chip" Morgan and Brad Mc- 
Grath, and four new additions in the 
faces of Ed Kerswig, Bill Bakey, Art 
Barrett and Ed White. 

This year's team will be facing 
a tougher schedule in that they play 
more games and against better op- 
ponents. Facing schools they have 
not previously met means that the 
Redmen will not be fully acquainted 
with their opponents or their type 
of play. Among the new opponents 
are Brown, Boston University, Bos- 
ton College, and Providence College. 
The first three of these teams will 
appear on our home court. 

The Redmen so far this year be- 
side their daily work outs have scrim- 
maged Amherst and an A.I.C. squad 
which they outclassed. 

Maroon and White 
Track Team Out 

The newest version of the Maroon 
and White track team, already pre- 
paring for its first meet on January 
13 in Boston, will be out to better 
the comparatively mediocre record of 
the 1949-50 squad despite the fact 
that three of last year's leading 
point-getters will not be wearing the 
UM spangles. 

Don Stowe will captain the present 
squad which will operate without the 
services of Hal Feinman, Jim Green- 
berg, and Al Carter who paced the 
Derbymen last year. Nevertheless up 
from the frosh ranks may come the 
manpower to offset this loss. 

What with two basketball floors 
in the Cage, the dash which in pre- 
vious years ran diagonally across 
the Cage, will be run between the 
two courts and possibly shortened 
from 35 to 30 yards. The 35-pound 
weight will be thrown out of doors. 
One pit will be used for the high 
jump, broad jump, and pole vault. 

The Redmen open their season at 
the Boston Y meet on January 13. 
A number of relay teams will be 
sent to Boston for the other major 
meets. The remainder of the schedule 
will consist of meets with other col- 

The Redmen are already working 
out, having started last Monday. 
What with the Christmas Vacation 
not too far off (thank goodness), the 
Maroon and White does not have too 
much time to get in shape for the 
current season, one which should 
show an improvement over last year's 
and four record. 

Looking Things Over 

by Joe Broude 



Do You Know That . . . 

After a 1911 hockey season which 
established the U of M as one of 
the host squads in the nation, the 
Maroon and White 1912 outfit suf- 
fered only one loss, that to Yale. 

The 1932 season saw a setback at 
the hands of Brown the only blotch 
on an otherwise perfect slate. 

just a short time the varsity 
basketball team will open their sea- 
son against Northeastern with a fif- 
teen man squad composed of nine vet- 
erans and six newcomers. It will be 
Of great interest to watch the new 
faces in the following weeks for it 
may be in their power to give the 
team a great season. 

The two members up from last 
years frosh squad are Brad McGrath 
and "Chip" Morgan and both have 
proven in the past that they know 
well their way around the court. Brad 
played for Williston Academy two 
years ago and when on the floor last 
year was the coordinator of the quin- 

Ed White and Art Barrett are 
names that were heard last year but 
neither remained on the squad. Ed is 
bothered this year with a bad knee 
and at this time it is doubtful wheth- 
er he can play but if he should re- 
gain full use of his leg he should 
prove to be of great assistance to the 
team. Art was on last year's squad 
for a short time so varsity ball is 
not new to him. He has been good 
enough to again make the squad so 
he should be of interest and worth 

The last two newcomers are soph- 
omore Bill Bakey and junior Ed Ker- 
swig. Bill did not play basketball last 
year and so little can be said con- 
cerning what he can do but he his 
proved himself an athlete by playing 
fveshman football and baseball. 

Last of the six is Ed Kerswig who 
starred on the freshman team in 
1949 alongside of Bill Prevey. Ths 
two wre the consistent top scorers. 
Fd was not out for the team last 
year but has won a berth this season 
nnd before the schedule is played nut 
he may ' be a loading man -on th" 
squad. Coach Ball agrees that he has 
n good eye and expect? at least some 
help from Fd. 

With the six question marks now 
tnken care of and alongside with 
the veterans only the ensuing weeks 
will tell the story. 


Freshmen or sophomores inter- 
ested in competing for managers 
of the track teams see Red Chad- 
wick in I'hys. Ed. Bldg. any time 
next week. 


All members of the sports staff 
will attend a short meeting in 
the Collegian office at 7:00 tonight.

MILLS MARCHES— (Bottom) D'Arrigo gains for Mills as Gunn tries

The Redmen started off the season in high gear by lambasting Bates 
26-0. Late in the second quarter the Split-T formation got rolling for two 
touchdowns. Tackle John Nichols scored his first college TD in the third 
quarter by falling on a Bates fumble in the latter's end zone. Then Captain 
Anderson scored to wind it up. 

Aftei-Jiaving their lead vanish into thin air before a two touchdown 
third period onslaught by Tommy Eck's Redmen, the W.P.I. Engineers scored 
twice and by the slim margin of an extra point gained a 21-20 win over 
the Maroon and White. 

In their best showing of the young season, though in a losing cause, 
the Redmen spotted highly-favored Williams two touchdowns and then pro- 
ceeded to battle the Ephs tooth and nail before bowing 42-34. Ray Beaulac 
scored three times for the Ecks. 

The Maroon and White outplayed Rhode Island all the way, but the 
Rams came out on top 38-27, by making all three pass completions good 
for scores. Gleason tallied twice for U-M, while Benoit scoted one touch- 
down and passed another. 

The Redmen celebrated their return to Alumni Field by running wild 
over Northeastern 27-6. It took the Eckmen three quarters to open their 
offense, but when they did, they maintained their high average of 27 poitns 
per game. George Howland was outstanding for the Maroon and White, 
while Reeb and Doherty scored. 

In a driving rain the Eckmen spotted Vermont a touchdown and then 
rolled to a 27-13 triumph. The Catamount lead was shortlived as Anderson 
ran back the ensuing kickoff to the Vermont 11 and Benoit took it over on 
the next play. 

The Redmen suffered their only home defeat as they bowed to Spring- 
field 26-0. The powerful Maroons stopped the highly-touted U-M offense 
and kept the Eckmen from threatening. Nobby Xolan stood out in defeat, 
playing a groat game for the home forces. 

The margin of an extra point enabled Tufts to edge the U of M in the 
finale at Medford. After the Jumbos scored, Reebenacher's long pass to 
Roth accounted for the UM score, but the try for the extra point failed, i 

For the fourth consecutive season the Redmen ended with three tri- 
umphs. Two of the five losses were by a single point while only one team 
showed a decided advantage over the Ecks. In contrast, the Redmen showed 
themselves completely superior to the Bobcats. Huskies, and Catamounts. 
In the five years since the war U-M boasts 18 wins as against 20 losses 
and two ties. 

Berkshire B successfully (let 
its Intramural Grid Championship h. 
gaining a 27-12 victory over Mills a 
before a shivering crowd on Alumr 
Field on the 21st. The Bomfeeri buil: 
up a twenty point lead, and tfc, 
Mills tallied twice, the B's teotti 
again to clinch the verdict. The ?,. 
umph ran Berkshire's win ■treat I 
twenty-two games. 

The night before tackling Mills j 
Arctic temperature, Berkshire 
gaged Phi Sigma Kappa, the fret* 
nity champions in a driving rtq, 
Scoring in the dying second of eacl 
half the Bombers gained a 154 tri- 
umph. With fifteen seconds to go i* 
the first half Dicenzo passed to Re*- 
swig, and Ed executed a neat lateral 
to Ray Gunn who sped untouched ir- 
to the end zone. Kerswig then took 
the pass for the extra point to make 
it 7-0. In the second half a poor pass 
from center cost the frat champs a 
safety and the score stood 9-0. W • 
a bare ten seconds remaining Bii; 
Prevey fired a short pass to Kenvi| 
to make it 15-0. 

Bombers Take Lead 

The first half of the final garaJ 
saw Dom Dicenzo pass to Kerswig for | 
a score. Mills almost scored, but R;! 
Prevey snatched a pass out of the I 
hands of the intended receiver in th| 
end zone. The score stood 6-0 Berk- 
shire. In the second half the Bombe« 
roared ahead 20-0. 

"Digger" Dicenzo passed to I 
"Glue-Fingers" Kerswig on the M. 
one yard line. Then Dom passed t 
John Gibbons for the score. Har*r I 
Pappas gathered in a Ray Gunn aer- 
ial for the extra point. Half #ay 
through the period the B's execute 
a neat trick play which found RSj 
Gunn carrying to the fourteen. This | 
time it was Pappas passing and Di- 
cenzo catching for the score. "Jm 
propelled" Gunn forwarded to K 
swig for the point after. 

Trailing 20-0 Mills went to tow. 
Pete D'Arrigo took the kickoff a '.[ 
the way for a touchdown. The n?r.| 
time the League B champs got the 1 
ball they tallied again, this time ?_| 
a Bill MacNamara to Bob GfSfM 
pass. Trailing 20-12, now Mills tri«| 
a short kickoff, but Dom Dicenzo "-I 
covered for Berkshire. Two passes a 
counted for the final score. The fir! 
went from Lou Touher to Hairy PaH 
pas and covered half the distance:] 
the goal. Dicenzo flipped to Kers^l 
for the touchdown. 

Sleeper Works 

To get the extra, the Bomb. I 
sorted to the old sleeper play and '[ 
worked. Frank Krohn took a P**] 
alone in the end zone. Mills tried si 
pass its way back into the game, W 
Lou Touher intercepted for the I | 
to write finis to Mills' hopes.

Sports Staff in the near future 
run a series of articles on then"" 
of U-M hockey, a sport Jaft r* 1 I 
revived on this campus. 


It's been over eight years since a varsity basketball squad 
i*s rinished over the .500 mark if you want to discount the war 
rears and the informal teams. Back in 1942 the hoopsters went 
hrough a fourteen game schedule with eight wins. The schedule 
alls for nineteen contests this year and with a fair share of the 
nealcs the Maroon and White should go back over that mark. 


Well, ego, another grid season has 
been written into the books, and 
again we cry wait till next year. 
As soon as the Eckmen solved their 
defensive problems they ran into 
trouble on the offense. To coin a 
phrase, "No further comment." 

The question of the week— will 
Messrs. Ked, Goodrich, and Co. have 
to invent special basketball sneakers 
for the new floor? Maybe it migh» 
not be a bad idea to have some de- 
tectives guarding the court durit g 
a game to prevent tome rather am 
bitious visitors from taking bom Ml 
expensive souvenir. 

An open letter to the sports editor 
of last year's Index: 

Berkshire B powered its way to 
its second consecutive league champ- 
ionship, roared by Phi Sig— frater- 
nity champions— 15-0, and was not 
halted by injuries in the finals 
against Mills — champion of League 
B. In recognition of the intramural 
championship each member of the 
Berkshire B team will be awarded 
a medal. (Not that we're giving les- 
sons in unbiased reporting!) 

What with two basketball courts 
available, intramural basketball has 
been given a shot in the arm which 
should make competition this year 
greater than last when elimination 
tourneys were necessitated by the 
small amount of time allotted to the 
leagues. So let's wipe off those glass 
backboards and let's get going.

Varsity Rifle Team 
Starts Practice; 
To Open Season 

The University Rifle Team has 
"fired off" to a bang-up start for th* 
'.">0 - '61 season. In two postal matches 
fired the week ending the 18th of 
November, the Redmen outshot the 
University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio, 
18f,2 to 1839, and Marion Institute, 
Marion, Alabama, 1862 to 1767. 

Marksmen for the University w't 
Stanley, Kelley, Williams, Barron, 
Uniina, Malouf, Gould, Nadel, Pur- 
ine, and Weinstein. Bill Stanley was 
individual scorer in both matches with 
a H77 out of a possible 400. Wes Kel- 
lev and Stan Barron fired 375 fol- 
lowed bv Ed Williams, 374, and Tony 
Uniina, 361. 

1 8«2 out of a possible 2000 is the 
hiphest score ever fired by a U-M 
t'-im in competition. This is sharp 
shoot intr and with srood triggerwork 
of this caliber, the Redmen should h* 
in for a banner season. 

Approximately 70 men are on the 
fi liner line this year. This is the best 
turnout the Rifle Team has ever had 
Seventv men definitely places the 
sharpshooters as a big participation 
varsity sport. Captain Glen Willough- 
bv of the Military Department is the 
Officer in Charge. Master Serjyeant 
Harry Piatt of the Military Depart- 
ment is coach. 

Most of this year's competition will 
be postal matches. Each team fires 
ten men. The total scores of the ton 
five men on each team are recorded 
and witnessed. Then the scores are 
exchanged through the mail and the 
winner is the team with the hiphest

to light. One always has more idea 
of how the ball will bounce when the

The two wins in ten starts can cer-

whose fight and spirit was not sub- 
merged on the not-so-green fields of 
the opposition. (Ed. Note).

Gordon "Sabu" Francis Finishes 
Final Game As Football Manager 

This week our profile eye turns 
to one of the most important men 
connected with the football team, 
Gordon "Sabu" Francis, the varsity 

Sabu was born in Taunton, Mass., 
October 28, 1928. While attending 
Taunton High School, he was a mem- 
ber of the Cadets, a local organiza- 
tion similar to the Junior R.O.T.C. 

'»f ten people look upon the man- 
ager's job as a free ticket to out of 
to n Kimes. This is not so, for no 
team can function properly without 
a manager. He must be able to do 
anything, anytime, and is usually 
needed in at least three different 
places at the same time. His duties 
range all the way from blowing up 
footballs to holding false teeth. Sabu 
lists the following as a few of his 
pre-season chores: planning eating 
schedules and checking the players at 
the dining hall, lugging equipment 
out on the field before practice and 
taking it in afterwards, keeping the 
field clear of papers and people, re- 
cording statistics during scrimmages 
and making out a master schedule 
of all the players' classes. He must 
report to every practice, having on 
hand extra footballs, cleats, shoe- 
strings, and anything else anyone 

Livestock Judging 
Team Holds Their 
Own at East. Nat. 

The livestock judging team from 
the University of Massachusetts 
emerged in sixth place at the recent 
Eastern National Livestock Show 
held at Timonium, Maryland at whic' 
fourteen schools competed in judg- 
ing beef cattle, sheep, hogs and hors- 

The contest was won by Pennsyl- 
vania, followed by Kentucky, Ohi' 
State, West Virginia and Clemson. U 
was a close contest as indicated b' 
the fact that Massachusetts was onl" 
51 points out of 5000 behind the fas' 
pace set by Penn. State. On niacin"- 
scores on all classes of livestock 
Massachusetts was th" hifh team ir 
the contest. Oral reason scores low- 
ered the standing. 

The Bay Staters won the ho*-* 
j-.idging division of the contest; fo* 
the second of three years thev war* 
awarded the Horse Association of 
America plaque. It was also th" 
third consecutive year that Massa- 
chusetts has led all other easte-n 
schools in judging Beleian horses. Th- 
team was also high in niacins Here- 
ford cattle. 

The team was made up of Charles 
Kiddv. Robert Law, John Manchester. 
Frank Perkins and Jim Robertson. 
Robert Taw was the Hiirh Individual 
of the contest in horse judginp and 
ranked fifth in the overall rankiff. 
Bob Merrick and Alan Monroe were 
the alternates. The team was coached 
by Professor Al Cowan of the Ani- 
mal Husbandrv Department. 

Tomes from fhe Tower 

Two new programs will originate 
from the tower beginning next week. 
"Revolving Band Stand", a program 
if musical entertainment, will be 
heard Monday through Friday at 
8:30 p.m., and, "A Date With Dusty", 
a program designed for men, will be 
heard on Friday night, the time not 
determined as yet. 

A tour of Boston radio stations 
was completed over the weekend by a 
survey staff of WMUA. This tour 
was conducted in order that our cam- 
pus station may function better, be- 
ing acquainted with new practices in 
the radio broadcasting field. 

might need. Before the home games, 
he must distribute advertising sigrs, 
pass out complimentary tickets to 
the players, arrange for the water 
boy, linesmen, and scoreboard oper- 
ators, drag out the equipment, and 
pay officials. For out of town games, 
he must make hotel reservations, ob- 
tain class excuses for players, and 
check equipment on the busses. 

As well as being a hard job it 
is a thankless one. There is rarely 
a word of praise but rather criticism 
for not doing some unimportant de- 

Sabu is fond of his work but his 
one pet peeve is his lack of assis- 
tance. Most schools have enough 
managers to make up another full 
squad,* while he has only one or two 
trying out for next year. He urges 
anyone who would like to be man- 
ager to visit the field; by way of 
encouragement, the University Club 
is starting an award for the manager 
of the year. If one is good enough 
he might get this worthwhile prize. 
This is Gordon's third year as man- 
ager, last year he received a letter 
in recognition of his work. 

As well as being manager, Gordon 
holds several other important posi- 
tions on the campus. He is a member 
of the Athletics Board, house man- 
ager of Kappa Sig, member of the 
Varsity M Club, and an officer in 
the Advanced R.O.T.C. When he 
graduates in the spring, if Uncle 
Sam doesn't call, he would like to en- 
ter some phase of extension work. 

Sabu's final comment was on the 
team. He looks forward to a good 
year, and claims that the spirit of 
both the team and the students has 
never been better.

vidual believes depicts the idea of a 
winter carnival best, will be accepted.

to this organization, it was only prop*

men gathered in Bowker Auditorium. 
Speakers at that time were Dean 
Hopkins, advisor to the Interfratemi- 
ty Council; Professor Richard Col- 
well, guest speaker; Ray Benson of 
SAE, chairman of rushing; and 
Charles Kiddy, President of the In- 
terfratemity Council. 

Rushing will be featured by smok- 
ers, open house dances, and long bull 
sessions at every fraternity house on 
campus. Throughout the next week 
and a half, freshmen will have frat- 
ernities, their ideals and good points 
dinned into their willing ears at all 
times of day and night. Rushing will 
end at 7 p.m. next Wednesday, in or- 
der to give the fresmen a breathing 
space before Pledge Chapel on Thurs- 
day night. 

The procedure for Pledge Chapol 
this year will be entirely different 
from that of last year. Freshmen will 
go to Old Chapel Auditorium at 7:30 
p.m. on Thursday evening, December 
8. Once there, they will go up to a 
central desk and give their name to 
the person sitting there. That person 
will check a central list. If the fresh- 
man's name is on the master list, he 
will be handed an envelope. Within 
this envelope will he bids with the 

names of any fraternities interested 
in pledging the freshman. When the 
freshman decides the fraternity of 
his choice, he returns the matching 
bid to the desk marked with the name 
of the fraternity of his choice. Then, 
the freshman will officially become a

and Mt. Holyoke. Social chairman 
Julie Balicki is in charge. 

At the last meeting, Father Thom- 
as Donovan, of the Jesuits of Holy 
Cross College in Worcester, spoke on

way possible. 

Members of, the Club are reminded 
that tomorrow is the first Friday of 
the month, the monthly communion 
day for the Newman Club. 

Mr. John Hanks and Mr. John 
Duke, of the Smith College Music 
department, will give a lecture-re- 
cital of songs in English, sponsored 
by the Fine Arts Council, at four 
o'clock this afternoon in Old Chapel 

Mr. Hanks, a tenor, and Mr. Duke, 
a composer and pianist, have pre- 
pared a program of English and 
American songs dating from the six- 
teenth century to the present. Many 
of the songs are poems by such well- 
known authors as Thomas Hardy and 
A.E. Housman. The musical settings 
are composed by Mr. Duke. 

The performance, for which there 
will be no admission charge, will be 
of special appeal to members of the 
university interested in literature 
and music.

infirmary the better. If a sick student 
remained in the dorm, who would care 
for him? The need in such cases is 
not for a visiting doctor but for 
thoughtful, careful assistance and 
quick transportation." 

When questioned about the alleged 
inflexibility of visiting hours, Dr. 
Radcliffe stated flatly that the job 
of the University medical service is 
to safeguard student health which 
involves constant vigilance. Constant 
vigilance, in this instance, means 
simply that no student is ever re 
fused medical care. 

Since many of the questions in- 
volved the infirmary, Dr. Radcliffe 
defined very briefly the role of the 
infirmary in student medical care: 

"Essentially, the infirmary per- 
forms the functions the student's 
would perform if the student were 
home. It is by no means a hospital, 
lacking the facilities to provide hos- 
pital services. 

Anxious to further constructive in- 
terest in student health, Dr. Rad- 
cliffe offered to collaborate with a 
Collegian reporter in the presenta- 
tion of a Health Column in the Col- 
legian. Such a column would pro- 
vide pertinent information on current 
health and medical considerations. 

Plans for the future, Dr. Radcliffe 
stated, include a new infirmary 
building in 1953. Plans are also being 
made in conjunction with the pro- 
posed Health Center. 

Far from being harassed and toil- 
worn, Dr. Radcliffe appears to thrive 
on business. During World War I 
Dr. Radcliffe, then a Canadian col- 
lege student, left the University of 
Toronto to join the Canadian field 
artillery as a gunner. After service 
in France and Belgium, during which 
he was both shot-up and gassed, he 
returned to the U. of M. to complete 
his medical education. 

Dr. Radcliffe joined the University 
of Mass. in 1930, after completing a 
rotating internship at Massachusetts 
General Hospital and the Boston 
Children's Hospital. 

From 1941 to 1945 he left the Uni- 
versity to serve as a Flight Surgeon 
at a Newfoundland air base engaged 
in anti-submarine work. Because his 
duties included flying with crews to 
learn first hand the problems they 
face, he is one of the few doctors who 
have earned a battle star on the Am- 
erican Theater ribbon.

On December 2, Wayne Langill will 
retire from his position as director of 

Many students on campus are un- 
familiar with Wayne and the work ho 
has done for them, but every student 
who expresses his appreciation for 
the campus radio station indirectly 
praises director Langill. Wayne's 
life has been devoted to radio work; 
he has been kept busy building one 
of the finest college radio stations 

in starting WFDM, the Devens Radi, 
station — "The Show Piece of Colk* 
Radio in New England". 

With the closing of Port I> 
Wayne was busy organizing a radi 
station on the U. of M. eamput, H 
spent the entire summer of l!»48 * 
campus rebuilding the equipment an: 
tower radio station. He was, and st:] ; 
is, the guiding administrative f r t , 
behind WMUA. In addition to this, he 
is the executive vice president «.f the 
Pioneer Broadcasting System and a 


in New England— WMUA. 

While attending Stevens High 
School in Claremont, New Hamp- 
shire, Wayne owned and operated sev- 
eral radio shops. Starting with the 
"Langill Radio and Sound Service", 
Wayne became partner in the Relihan 
and Langill Repair Service and pur- 
chased the Ace Radio Service. After 
graduation from high school, Wayne 
enrolled in a correspondence course 
in radio offered by the National Ra- 
dio Institute in Washington, D. C. 
Then came the war. 

Technically-minded Langill was 
sent to radar school and became a re- 
pairman in the Fifth Air Force. 
Wayne was wounded while serving in 
the Pacific and, after a year of hos- 
pitalization, was discharged. 

Wayne's interest in technical re- 
search led him to a job with the 
Steven Arnold Co. of Boston where 
he did secret research work on the 
V-2 rocket for the Navy. He gave 
this job up for one of a more social- 
minded nature — Director of the Bud- 
dies' Club in the Boston Common, 
one of the largest U.S.O. clubs in 
the country. During the evenings, 
Langill studied electrical engineering 
at Northeastern University. 

In 1946, W T ayne enrolled at Fort 
Devens. Again, he exhibited his in- 
satiable desire to achieve by his work

French Club 

George Krier, the exchange stu- 
dent from France at the U. of M., 
was the principal speaker at the last 
meeting of the French Club. He spoke 
on the ruins in France, the preser- 
vation of French culture, and his 
impressions of America. 

Mr. Gilbert Cestre of the French 
department, a native of Dijon, France, 
gave a humorous twist to his infor- 
mal talk on marriage and family life 
in France today. Andre Haniere, ex- 
change student at Amherst College 
and a lab instructor here at the U. 
of M., told of festivities at different 
times of the year in the agricultural 
sections of France. 

Mr. Haniere taught the members 
two French songs after the meeting; 
cookies and soft drinks were served 
at the social hour which followed the

continue to function, it will be seri-

he has only one semester before grad-

Fossil Collection 
Donated To The 
Dept. of Geology 

On November 20th, the department 
of geology and mineralogy at the U. 
of M. received a donation of a large 
collection of fossils and minerals 
from Mr. Raymond R. Hibbard of 
Buffalo, New York. 

The collection consists of thousands 
of micro-fossils, many choice fossil 
corals, brachiopods, and minerals, the 
latter from localities in New York 
State and Canada %vhere they are no 
longer available. 

Mr. Hibbard is a well-known auth- 
ority on fossil bryozoans, a group of 
marine animals that are very difficult 
to study. He has collected and studied 
these fossils as a specialty for many 
but has also made valuable

The idea for a new field did not 
originate in 1!M4. In 18M, William 
P. BfOOka, President a! the- College, 
ordered a piece of land to be bought 
for an athletic field, but the land 
proved unsuitable for this pnipoOB. 
In June of 1900, the students peti- 
tioned the alumni for assistance. En- 
thusiasm for action was high. How- 
ever, nine years later, the legisla- 
ture granted $5500 to buy a portion 
of the land that is now part of the 
present athletic field, while trustees 
bought adjoining property.

As Others See Vs 

Editor's Note: The following is a reprint of an editorial published in the 
Hofaoke Transcript of November 10, 1950. _., . »»„«>, 

Liberal arts subjects taught with a view toward giving wom- 
en a wider scope in life presents a more favorable way of solving 
the problem of a universal education for women than does the 
addition of technical and domestic arts subjects to the already 
overloaded curriculum. So speaking, a group .of area college presi- 
dents, in a panel discussion sponsored by the Connecticut Valley 
chapter, American Association of University Women, at the Hotel 
Northampton last evening, approached the question of how to 
prepare a woman for life as a homemaker and mother as well as 
for a profession or vocation, upon which emphasis in the college 

classroom is currently being placed. -.._« ,. 

Speaking to 150 members of the branch, President Benjamin 
F. Wright of Smith college, President Roswell G. Ham of Mount 
Holyoke college and President Ralph Van Meter of the University 
of Massachusetts discussed means by which the college could 
prepare women to meet the problems of life in a way comparable 
to that by which they can be taught how to solve the problems 
met in the business or profession of their choice. However they 
went on, the college is hampered in this by the fact that the fu- 
ture situation in life of the student, in so far as preparing her for 
possible crises is concerned, is an unknown element for which it 
is impossible to assign specific subjects. 

President Ham, who opened the discussion and served as 
chairman of the panel, brought in the time element, saying that 
four years are not enough to give the student training in domes- 
tic arts as well as those which are now considered essential to 
her education. President Ham also stated that a change in the 
method of teaching the currently offered liberal arts subjects 
would offer a better means of giving the student proper training 
than would the addition of domestic arts courses to the curricu- 

Um Taking over the discussion, President Van Meter said that 
the education of women at the best is difficult. Whereas men are 
prepared to make a living for a family, women necessarily face 
three steps in life. First, after college, they become the working 
irirl then the homemaker and later they enter a period when chil- 
dren have grown up and left home. The greatest disaster today, 
according to the University of Massachusetts president, is that 
the brains and ability of the women in the latter category are 
allowed to go to waste. He said that the League of Women Voters 
Is an example of work that can be done by women with no famines 
to care for longer. ■ 

President Wright raised the question of short courses lor 
alumni and that brought about the second point of agreement, 
that graduate courses or summer studies are the only place tor 
teaching of technical arts to women. All three educators agreed 
that there is so much territory to cover and four years is such 
a short period, that technical subjects cannot be contained in the 
liberal arts curriculum. 

As members of the audience moved on to the questioning, 
the question was raised as to whether colleges are arousing the 
interest in the undergraduate for additional education after grad- 
uation and the three speakers asserted that is a problem facing 
educators today. Dr. Ham thought that while colleges are striving 
to create a thirst for additional knowledge, they have partly failed 
and even greater effort must be expended to create excitement 
in the alumnae population. - -, — ■—-- -- 

Mrs. Mildred Weeks Prince of the Burnham School faculty, 
who is president of the club, introduced the speakers. It was an- 
nounced that the next meeting will be an open lecture by Dr 
Margaret Mead on "Contrasts Between Contemporary Cultures, 
and will be held at Stockbridge Hall of the University of Massa- 
chusetts January 10.

Dear Editor, 

I must say I was surprised and more than pleased 
to see a quote of yours in the Daily Cardinal, the paper 
here at the University of Wisconsin. The essence of 
the quotation is worthy of repetition and I might add 
that colleges shouldn't be (exist), if they don't pro- 
voke thought so that the end product (the student) is 
one who can think. This is one of the basic faults with 
citizens today, here and throughout the world, and we 
are paying for it now and will pay for it tomorrow. 
I would appreciate a copy of the COLLEGIAN 
mentioned. In fact, send me a subscription and the 
cost thereof. I'm shooting the moon. 

Merry Christmas
